"oh nothing, nothing at all"

sometimes i'll ask keaton what she's thinkin' and she'll say, "oh nothing, nothing at all", which i know is bad news because i'm acutely aware of what i'm thinking when i answer, "oh nothing, nothing at all", and it's almost always dumb man thoughts—bordering on mental case, voices-in-the-head stuff really.
but i keep a stiff upper lip, smile and say, "okay, no problem", all the while tormented inside by my own "oh nothing, nothing at all" man extrapolations, only to find some remedy in the fact that she is a woman after all, and therefore probably doesn't think quite like i do.

I hate when Mr. itsme asks me that question (it's really a dumb question). And for the sake of argument, I also always say "nothing." But what I'd really like to say is "Are you sure you REALLY want to know?"

Yup, we don't quite think the same way. So be careful what you wish for.

When Jon asks me what I'm thinking, I tell him. Most of the time, he wishes he never asked; most of the time, not all of the time.
