A Little Birdie

Moments when I should biff myself in the head . . . 

Me: “A little birdie told me . . . 

Thane: “What kind of bird?”
Me: “It's an expression . . . someone told me that you won a prize a today.”
Thane: “But how can a bird talk?”
<Biff myself> “When I said birdie, I really meant a person told me.”
Thane: “What?”
Me: “That you got a prize!”
Thane: “I did? What is it?”
Me: “I don't know! I was just told you answered the morning question.”

Thane: “That's right! I remembered where the first miniature golf course was created.”
Me: “Really? Where was that?”
Thane: “New York City. Now you will know when they ask again next October, so don't forget.”
