My best call in a long time

Sitting in the back yard of partner's extravagant home in Topanga Canyon, at firm event over the weekend.

Associate 1: This house is really well-designed. Look at how big these eaves are. It protects the walls from having rainwater run over them and risk leaking or water damage.

Associate 2: Oh, yeah. I thought you were going to say that the long eaves allowed the rain to roll down and water the plants here in the yard.

Me: Presumably, the rain itself would be watering the plants, wouldn't it?

Associate 1: Now I see what that $100,000 Harvard degree is getting you.
