Every man in the Universe worth his scars, cringes at a homecoming female voice that utters the words, 'do you know what they did and said?'
He listens in amazement as she completes a full short story, with character dialouge and background color in one continuous breath that an opera singer would be jealous of.

Lucky dog, he thinks to himself with a pleasing quirky smile as he nods his head and says, 'oh no, really; I never would have imagined' as his self muse querys, 'mark her down for the next cocktail party.'
Out of breath and out of words, she finally gets the picture and says, 'you'd better be paying attention because there is a pop quiz after this lecture!'
