Lying down

I was recently reminded of a conversation I had with someone a while ago that went something like this:

Me: “Hey, how’re you doing?”

Them: “Ok. At least I’m horizontal.”

*slight pause*

Me: “What?”

Them: “Horizontal… you know, standing up. I dunno, maybe it’s the other one. I always get them confused.”

Me: “You mean lateral?”

Them: “Yeah, that. Whatever. I’m lateral.”

Me. “Mhm. Sure, you are.”

It was almost too easy.

  1. from this supine position, i’d straightaway align myself with the literal lateral…only when piloting my therapedic, of course.

  2. I wanted to make some kind of upright comment but I see some other upstanding citizen took the fall and laid down the law. But I lie. I never really leaned toward anything on my own but went straight to imitating what was laid down previously by others.
