The retrograde future.
I have a vegetarian friend that came over so that I could "tutor" her in phonology (turns out she really was there so I could tutor her; it wasn't one of those did-somebody-call-a-plumber things). So I asked her if she wanted something to drink and she said she had an aquafina in her bag. I said "you know it's got--" "Yeah, meat, I know. My friends have told me that." What a bunch of jerks.
Did she at least say, "oooh, phonology gets me hot" or something like that?
No, but I got to demonstrate a voiceless bilabial fricative to her which is almost the next best thing.
