ME: I fell off the bike on the way home.
MARK: Did you hurt yourself?
ME: Nah. Scraped my knee and my hands. I broke my capo.
MARK: Capo?
ME: The guitar clamp.
MARK: Why wasn’t it in the case?
ME: It’s impractical to have it there. It just bounces around. It’s annoying.
MARK: What about the bike?
ME: It’s nothing. The wheel is bent. I’ll have to get a new one.
MARK: And you’re talking about a £10 clamp?
ME: Well… Sure. The guitar is important.
MARK: And your bike isn’t? Sweetie, your priorities are strange. I’m not driving you.
