ME: (Tries to work)
(Something mildly good happens)
MY BRAIN: YEAH! THAT IS THE THING ABOUT WHICH I AM SPEAKING!
MY BRAIN: What?
ME: Why did you say that?
MY BRAIN: I thought that’s what you were supposed to say when something good happened and you wanted to indicate excitement.
ME: Um… do you mean “That’s what I’m talking about”?
MY BRAIN: Yes. But there are considerations of grammar.
ME: The expression loses a certain amount of punch if expressed in painfully correct English.
MY BRAIN: I am not going to lower my standards just to appear socially adroit.
ME: As long as you don’t mind sounding like a complete idiot.
MY BRAIN: If it makes you feel better, I will raise my extremities into the atmosphere and manipulate them as if my concerns were minimal.
