Lying in Bed at nignt:
Me: Are we Best Friends?
Lorenzo: No, now go to sleep. .....
(long pause) .... We are
better than Best Friends.
We're Life Partners.
Me: We're gay?
Lorenzo: (pause) ... Go to sleep.
"That is where your getting your next purse from if you don't start acting right." Lorenzo nods in the direction of the Goodwill we are driving by.
" Won't it be amazing in the New System when we will all have the opportunity to
have perfect bodies........... You won't have a trace of black in you."
My husband to his Cousin while we are in the field service car group:
Lorenzo: I told him exactly what I thought about him. It was the first time
in a long time I was genuinely mean to someone.
Me: Wait, what?
Lorenzo: Other than Mary.
" You know I can't understand a word you say when you speak immigrant" Me to Lorenzo when he is frustrated that I can't hear him from another room.
Lorenzo: Please don't yell in the hallway at the neighbors
Me: I was not yelling in the hallway at the neighbors
Lorenzo: Then what were you just doing?
Me: I was yelling at YOU in the hallway that the neighbors HAPPEN to use.
"You see what a good husband I am? First I bring you roses, then I yell at you. Then I surprise you with a spa day."
Lorenzo singing from the other room:
Lorenzo: Toniiiiiggght we are young. So let's set Mary on fire. On Fire. On Fiiiiirrrre
Mary: Why are you setting me on fire?
Lorenzo: With Love silly. With Love.
