"Says who?"
"Says the guy who watched you try to extricate yourself from a burger suit with a knife."

“Mom, she's a yoga teacher. She doesn't do..." He lowered his voice just fractionally. "Real jobs."
Aja heard it loud and clear, and looked at him incredulously. "I don't do real jobs?"
"Don't be ridiculous," Lucinda said to Michael. Aja's chest tightened with gratitude before she added, "This isn't a real job, it's a task that someone needs to do, and Aria seems to fit the bill." She leveled that cool blue gaze on Aja. "Don't you?"
"I don't think so," Aja said, suddenly taken over by a cool resentment. She looked from Lucinda to Michael. "I can't believe you two are arguing back and forth about how incompetent and... and... desperate I apparently seem to you. Not that I should have to defend myself to you, but my little job helps a lot of people. Would you have any more respect for me if I was called a physical therapist instead of a yoga instructor? Because that's basically what I am." Her anger rose disproportionate to the offense, and she tried to keep her voice controlled. "The hospital thinks so, anyway, as they have kept me employed there for five years. They consider it to be a real job when they pay me."
For a moment, Lucinda and Michael both seemed stunned into silence.”
Beth Harbison, The Cookbook Club: A Novel of Food and Friendship

"Never seen a man so whupped," the Sheriff said, rolling a toothpick from one side of his mouth to the other.
"Got him by the short hairs," Willie concurred.
Naturally, every man in town thought Doc was getting some. Naturally, every woman in town knew better.
"A dog don't dance for a bone he's already chewed," Dot said, sliding Ben Harrington's plate lunch in front of him.
"Depends on the bone," the Sheriff said, as they watched Doc run across the street to catch up with Angela.
"Depends on the dog," Dot countered, giving Willie a look that made his face burn.”
Paula Wall, The Rock Orchard
