Disputes: Follow-upFriday, September 24, 2010
[I know you’re all on the edge of your seats for this.]
White man’s overbite… Come on, haven’t you people seen “When Harry Met Sally??” It’s only, like, Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal at their finest! Perhaps this term is also known outside the realm of movie quotes, but I learned it from Mr. Harry Burns:
Harry: ...You just get to a certain point when you get tired of the whole thing.
Sally: What whole thing?
Harry: The whole life-of-a-single-guy. You meet someone, you have the safe lunch, you decide you like each other enough to move on to dinner, you go dancing, you do the white man's overbite [bites lower lip, makes two fists, funny shoulder movement], you go back to her place….
So, congratulations to Becky (who started the whole convo), Christeeny, and AnnieLaurie for knowing what I was talking about.
To everyone else, thanks for playing but I expect that next time I make a reference to “baby fish mouth” you will know what I’m talking about.
