Overheard in the Office...

I'm sitting at my desk, Bobbi is down the hall in the tub. Suddenly I hear a voice from the bathroom!
RX: "Can you bring me a pencil?" 
Me: "A what?!?
RX: "A pencil. There's one stuck in the wooden block mounted over my desk..." 
Me: "Sure, yeah, I mean... I heard you, it's just that I've been on this planet just over half a century at this point and that's literally the first time I've ever had someone in a bathtub ask me to bring them a pencil."
(She needed to mark a particularly annoying vocabulary error in the book she was reading, not scrawl a new geometrical proof on the bathroom wall.)
