My cousin vinny“My cousin Vinny…”

“Wait, wait, wait,” I rudely interrupted.  “You have a cousin named Vinny?”  She nodded her head and continued her story.


Later, a group of us discussed our high school teachers and how we only remember the naughty ones.  You know, the ones that did something memorably bad.

“Wait, wait, wait,” I rudely interrupted.  “Your high school teacher cooked meth and had students sell it?  Was his name Walter White, by chance?”

Hmm.  I’m starting to notice a pattern here.
