(Setting: CC's favorite clothing store in the mall, CC is seated on one of the couches. Honorary-sister-in-Law Tina and TheCSO and I have been shopping for several hours. HSIL Tina comes in.)
HSILT: Hey, where's theCSO?
CC: He went to Williams-Sonoma. He's looking for a cocktail shaker.*
HSILT: Ah, yeah, he stopped by to check on me when I was in the swimsuit place. I decided to buy a two-piece swimsuit to wow Charlie. I tried on a couple and modeled then for TheCSO, who helped me pick.
CC: Hmm... Boy, we MUST be like family because I get that on some level I should probably be cheesed off that you're modeling two-piece bathing suits for my husband, but I'm totally like whatever.
LADY WHO IS WALKING PAST US: (gapes at us, eyes wide) You two have totally redefined the word "whatever" for me! I will never use it loosely again!
Gee, some people are SO-O pointlessly uptight...
