So when I was a little Pit Mom came home one day fuming mad. She was in an elevator and the gentleman next to her asked her if she minded if he smoked. She was a militant anti-smoker (which is probably why I smoke cigars…), and all she could muster was “Yes I do”. He chuckled and lit up anyway. Of course after she got home she thought about what to say. She was pissed because the exchange didn’t go like this:

He: “Mind if I smoke?”
She: “Of course not, I wouldn’t want to deny you the only thing that lights up in your presence.”

Comebacks, particularly the devastating ones usually aren’t at hand when you need them, unless of course you’re Winston Churchill.

Astor: “If you were my husband, I’d poison your tea.”
Churchill: “Madam, if you were my wife, I’d drink it.”
