The scene: A recent party at my apartment
Friend: Do your windows open?
Friend: Your windows. Do they open?
Me: What do you mean?
Friend: I mean, do your windows open.
Me: I don’t know. I use Windows Seven. I like it alright. What’s this “Windows Open” thing? Is Microsoft trying to incorporate social media into their OS or something? Is it like Google Buzz? I don’t see that going very well.
Friend: No. Your windows. Like, the glass ones to the outside. Can we open them? There are lots of people in here and it’s getting way too warm.
(Long, embarrassing pause)
Me: Yeah. We can do that.
