842. What we mean is what we don't say... (85)

What we sayYes, I'm tired too.  I'll switch off my computer in a minute...  Just let me finish this last Freecell, I've got to finish it...  Look, I'm nearly there... Of course it's the same Freecell as half an hour ago, I just haven't worked it out yet...

What we mean:  One of these days you're going to look over my shoulder and memorise the layout, and realise that I'm telling porky pies and I'm on my tenth game...

What is says about us:  When we're little we throw tantrums because we don't want to go to bed.  Now we're grown up we play Freecell instead.
