Captain Thoughtful and I always see one of our neighbors grilling on his driveway and he always waves hello to us and in general seems like a totally nice fellow. And then I ruined it.
Captain Thoughtful: There is our buddy out grilling again. He’s so friendly!
Me: He is.
Me: But, what if he isn’t?
Captain Thoughtful: Um?
Me: We don’t really know anything about him except that he always waves and grills out almost every night.
Captain Thoughtful: Yes….
Me: What if he’s like, grilling *people* meat or something? He could be a cannibalistic serial killer and we’re just passing by thinking what a nice guy he probably is.
Captain Thoughtful: I suppose.
Me: And like, we are *enabling* him by waving. If he is killing and grilling people then we are partly to blame because we totally encourage him with our friendly waves.
Captain Thoughtful: I don’t think that would hold up in court darlin.
Me: I’m just saying.
