Me: What is your wife’s favorite color?
Lawyer: I don’t know, why?
Me: I’m trying to get started on my holiday knitting. Find out for me.
Lawyer picks up the phone, calls his wife, asks her what her favorite color is. “Because she’s trying to start her holiday knitting,” he says impatiently, as if it were obvious. “Okay, bye.”
Me: Off-white? Like cream? Or beige?
Me: But that’s not a color. How about light blue? I have some gorgeous pale blue mohair.
Lawyer: No, she seemed pretty definite about the off-white.
