I had come home with the towel around my waste from swimming so that the bathing suit wouldn't get the car too wet, and then I put the towel in the most logical place when I walked into the house.
me: Oh, by the way, when I was leaving for the gym I remembered you asked me not to use the white towels, but I couldn't find another one, can you give me another one?
Allison: No, I meant the nice, white towels for guests. You can use that one. That one is ripped and stained.
me: Oh, that one is for me and the dog, hah?
Allison: No! Rosie has her own towel.
