I recently brought 5 boxes of Girl Scout cookies to bring into work to share. And whenever someone asks me what kind I got, I’ll always take a second to think, and then I’ll respond, “I got 5 boxes of Samoas.”
Why do I always take a second? Because this logic always gets called:
whatYouGot = “Samosas”;
if(whatYou’reTalkingAbout == “Girl Scout Cookies”) whatYouGot = “Samoas”;
Which is a fancy way of saying, I’m always ready to say “Samosas,” but I’m always aware that could be wrong, so I have to think about it to figure out if what I mean to say is actually “Samoas.”
Here are some other scenarios that are affected:
Question: What do you want for appetizers?
And additionally, there’s some extra logic in my head for this:
Question: Who was that baseball player that was in the home run race with Mark McGuire?
Reponse: …Sammy Sosas!
