Conversations . . .

. . . with Ian.

Well, sort of. Lisa was talking to Ian via Skype, and this followed - not word-for-word, mind you, but the gist of it:

Lisa: Would you like to talk to Ian?

Me: Sure. {short conversation about gearboxes, driving yellow hotrods, etc.} Due to apparent blue screen of death on my computer, conversation ends.

Lisa (intending to fix my computer): Would YOU like to talk to Ian?

Mrs. B: Sure

Lisa (40 minutes later): Can I talk to Ian . . . PLEASE?
