Me: Kevin, I'll be home after you go to sleep. Well, that is, assuming we win our first match.
Andy: Which you should, right?
Me: Yes, definitely; we've been in first place all season. Then we'll wait while the other match plays before playing in the finals so I'll be home after 10:00.
Andy: If not, then just don't come home at all.
8:30 pm, I walk in the door
Andy: Why are you home?
Me: We lost.
Andy: What, did you play with 4 people?
Me: No, six.
Andy: (blank stare)
Me: But not our usual six.
Andy: Please tell me you lost in 3 games.
Andy: Ok, you can stay home.
