Here's normal conversation between Elijah and I:
Elijah: Congratulations Jeff!
Jeff: Lol, gracias. [Lol, thank you.]
Elijah: It's not a joke. Did I laugh?
Jeff: No, pero gracias. [no, but thank you.]
Elijah: We'll see just how funny it really is when you come home to a pile of ash. On Christmas.
Jeff: You better not.
Elijah: Better not what? I just suggested the inhilariousness of the situation. I wasn't implying anything.
Jeff: Except that you were going to burn my house down Christmas morning.
Elijah: Did I say morning? Because I'm pretty sure I never suggested a time of day. Just the date.
Jeff: Fine, I'll be waiting.
Elijah: I'm putting in an advance report at the local police department, so that way they know that when your house burns down on Christmas morning, they're gonna be knocking on your door, er...stump, not mine.
Jeff: Ha, you just said morning. Now i know the time of day!
Elijah: Are you kidding me? Don't try and twist my words. And it's gonna take a lot more than an abnormally tall, lovesick teenager to stop the wrath of fire that shall most certainly descend upon your dwelling.
Jeff: Lol, what the hell?
Elijah: "I'll be waiting." You didn't think I'd overlook that comment did you? If you did, you've got no idea what's in store for you.
Yep... normal conversation...
