Eating dinner tonight, Cindy (my sister) and I were having a conversation about her laptop issues, which brought her to order a new one. She told me that she opened up the inside of the Mac for the first time since purchase five years ago. She missed two screws and kept prying it open unsuccessfully.
She tried so hard, and failed so hard. She was deathly afraid of breaking the laptop. She then saw the two tightened screws and unscrewed them.
My dad, at this time, said this:
“Cindy… next time, you should try sesame.”
Cindy’s first thoughts on his suggestion: “What? He wants me to sprinkle sesame seeds onto the laptop?!”
My first thoughts on his suggestion: “What? Pour sesame dressing on there as a lubricant?”
He meant to say, “Open sesame.” As in, the magic line. As in, he is the lamest but funniest father a son and daughter could have.
