I was chatting with my friend Lynn on Sunday, and I told her how Alex said that the movie theatre was much easier to clean up after Indiana Jones opening night than it was after the opening of the new movie Sex and the City.
WARNING - MOVIE SPOILER INCLUDED IN THIS DIALOGUE
Lynn: Oh! I saw that movie this weekend!
mompoet: I never watched the TV show, so I'll probably skip the movie. How did you like it? Is it worth seeing?
Lynn: Yes, we liked it. I don't know about that part with the aliens, though. And the fire ants were really scary. I had to close my eyes.
(mompoet is picturing one of the Sex and the City girls dating an alien, then being eaten by fire ants)
Lynn: I can't stand parts like that. But it was exciting and full of action. I wonder if he does his own stunts.
(mompoet thinking that this is a bit easier to reconcile with her idea of the movie but still...)
mompoet: You're talking about Indiana Jones, right? I thought you meant Sex and the City.
(Lynn and mompoet laughing)
question: what do you talk about when the person you are talking to is talking about something else?
mompoet - partially disconnected, but still trying
