own phrase that
commonplace to not raise suspicions when
Girlfriend (on other end of phone): "Are you trying to tell
me you don't feel the same about me? I don't get it."
You (on phone): "No, that's not at all what I'm saying."
Girlfriend: "You're acting
very weird, there must
be something else. Did you sleep with someone else?"
You: "Oh, I'd say in about 10 minutes."
