I just had this conversation with a faculty member I ran into in the hall:
He starts by saying something I don't quite catch.
"I said 'hello, StyleyGeek'."
"Oh. Sorry. Hi."
"You're all wrapped up warm."
"It's cold today."
"I'm expecting so, anyway."
"Really? You're expecting snow?" To someone nearby, "Styley says it's going to snow!"
"No, so. I said 'I expect so'."
"Oh. Right then. How are you today, anyway?"
"Damp." (My hair was still dripping from the rain I had just cycled through).
He gives me a slightly baffled look and, with the air of someone humouring a slightly dangerous psychiatric patient, replies, "Well, I hope you are more 'alive' later."
