Eric says...

We were discussing baking issues at high altitude, when Eric said:

"That's why, if you had an unlimited budget and you were tired of having to make adjustments all the time, you could get a hyperbolic chamber to cook in. It would be great!" Stops to think of all the time he would save.

"You mean hyperbaric. If it were a hyberbolic chamber, it would be the Best! Chamber! Ever! You would never want to leave! It would be so FABULOUS! Wow!"

At this, Eric and Caitlin cracked up. Eric might have even blushed a little in embarrassment. Caitlin, who has been reading Calvin and Hobbes, added yet another strange word to her list (Defenestrate! Metropolis! Municipality! Thoroughfare! Serene! Calvin & Hobbes was awesome for improving your vocabulary. I miss those comics.), laughed just to laugh. We explained the difference later.

Yet another reason why it's good to be married to me. Somebody's got to know the difference between hyperbolic and hyperbaric.

At Chez Hatchet, that would be me.

I love it. And that's not just hyperbole.
