a conversation

me: ...big storm... black sky... flooded building...

s: yeah, that's really cute. look, i don't know if you've heard about the storms down here... let's see.. any roofs ripped off? giant gum trees snapped like twigs? widow makers, we call them nowadays. no? what about cars... any cars washed down river? no? what about hail... golf ball, cricket ball or rockmelon...? no hail you say? tsk. so a little bit of rain was there? did you hear some thunder? aw, how special...

me: lolz
