Once we overheard a blowhard say, “I remember the first time I read that in German.” Such douchebaggery was gold, so for years whenever one of us said something pompous, the other would repeat this line. Every couple has little in-jokes harvested at the expense of some unwitting putz. That’s why I squelched when a friend who had been studying dreams asked me quite earnestly and easily within earshot of the next table, “When you dreamt of your dead budgie, what was Salty trying to say to you?” I knew that that couple would dine off that line for years.
