Me: The car is running a little funny.
Him: How do you mean?
Me: It sounds corroded.
Him: Like how?
Me: Like it’s riding rough and uneven and weird. Also, it doesn’t start right up in the morning.
Him: Well those are two separate issues. One could be the battery, but since we just got a new one, it’s probably not. The riding weird is another issue. Can you be more specific?
Me: Just….weird. Like rocky. Or like the engine is dirty.
Him: I’m not sure you could tell the engine is dirty by just driving the car…
Me: It sounds like “rrrr….rrrr…rararara…rarrrrr….rrrr.”
Him: What does that even mean?
Me: I don’t know! It’s just riding unusually. Like the Scooby Van.
Him: I have no idea what you are saying.
How is it you can describe things so much better when you write them?
