Overheard at Little Caesars

Dude #1: (to me) "That'll be about five minutes."
(to coworker) "Dude, you're still going old school? I use the pitcher."

Dude #2: (while filling up cups of Crazy Sauce) "Uh..."

Dude #3: "We did three tubs in ten minutes with the pitcher. When I worked up at 90th, Richard saw me using the pitcher one time, and told me I had to use the ladle. Two days later I came in and he was using the pitcher."

Dude #1: "I like Richard. He plays WoW."

Dude #3: "Richard has a glass eye."

Dude #1: "Richard has a glass eye?"

(pause)

Dude #1: "How's the battle?"

Dude #3: "The battle?"...

Dude #1: "With sobriety."

Dude #3: "Oh...I haven't smoked in three weeks."

Dude #1: "How do you feel?"

Dude #3: "Accomplished."

(pause)

Me: "Busy this morning?"

Dude #1: "Indeed."

I think I like Richard, too. We should invite him over.

Dude, what if his glass eye fell out in the crazy sauce?

Indeed.

Hahaha. This is awesome. I'm just glad Dude's been sober for almost a month. That's gotta be good for his lungs.

Would you normally describe someone that smokes as not being sober? I usually think of that word being more associated with drugs or alchohol. I bet Dude's really been pot-free for almost a month.
