these go to eleven...

I was just reminded of a surreal conversation I once had with one of my wife's nutty aunts at a family gathering. I hope the zen-like perfection translates to text...

Aunt: I don't eat tuna. They kill the dolphins.

Me: But what about the tuna?

Aunt: (PAUSE) They kill the dolphins.

Me: Alright... what about salmon?

Aunt: Oh, salmon's delicious!

And that's how "Salmon's delicious!" became a catch phrase in my house. (Meaning I'm the only one who ever says it, and when I do, my wife rolls her eyes and tells me to stop making fun of her aunt.)
