This story is too long to tell on Twitter so I thought I’d share it here:
Scene: Wes and I are downstairs, eating dinner on the couch. Wes has been working from home all day, so his hair is messy and he’s wearing a bathrobe because our house is freezing. Someone knocks on the door, which only Doc notices, waits about 30 seconds, then rings the doorbell.
Wes: I’ll get it.
He walks up the stairs, walks up to the door as if to open it, then remembers he’s still wearing his bathrobe. He walks over to the stairs, takes off his bathrobe, then walks up to the door as if to open it. He then remembers his hair is messy, so he opens the coat closet instead and grabs his raincoat off the hanger. He puts on the heavy raincoat, flips the hood up over his hair, then finally answers the door. No one is there. He walks back downstairs after hanging his coat back up again.
Wes: There was no one there.
Erika: That? Is not exactly surprising.
Erika: Dude, you took forever to answer the door. No one’s going to stand there waiting for that long.
Wes: Well, my hair was messy! I had to put on my hood.
Erika: Um, I think you probably looked crazier wearing a heavy raincoat with the hood up indoors than than you would have with just crazy hair.
Wes: No way.
Erika: Wes, you’re allowed to have messy hair in your own freaking house! If I’d seen someone answer the door wearing a raincoat and hood, I would have thought their ceiling was busted and it was raining indoors.
Wes: No way.
