Just one example of something the DNB, as a B-O-Y, would never understand

"I've decided to really unpack my Closet Room in earnest on Thursday," I announce to the DNB on the phone.

"Why Thursday?" he asks.

"Well because I have plans tomorrow morning and then we have the block party tomorrow night, so if I work in my 80 degree Closet Room all afternoon I'll be all sweaty and then I'll have to take a shower," I explain in a tone which implies obviously. "Which means I'll have to blow-dry my hair, and you know how I feel about blow-drying my hair."

"Oh," he replies in a tone which not so much implies, but more specifically indicates: I stopped listening two words in and you're lucky I was even aware enough to give you this tiny verbal cue that I'm still on the line.

I'm beginning to think that maybe the wrong one got the Barbie nickname.
