Acquaintance: Did you have a good day off?
Me: Well, not really. I took a day off to get some chores done, but I didn't do anything. I just lay around and relaxed.
Acquaintance (jokingly): You relaxed on your day off?! How terrible! I won't be your friend any more.
Acquaintance: Did you read?
Me: Yes. But I wasn't planning to read, so I didn't have any new books. I read some books that I've read before.
Acquaintance: Oh horrors!
It's nice to have someone put things in perspective for me, so I don't feel so bad about how I spent the day.
