in which i narrowly avoid going Colbert on someone

In a conversation about the similarity of the forests of New Zealand to the forests of the Pacific Northwest.

person:  “Have you seen the ‘Lord of the Rings’ movies?”

me:  [nods]

person:  “Okay, so you know the forests?”

me:  “Um, which one?”

person:  “You know, the forests.”

internal monologue:  No, which forests?  Do you mean Lothlorien?  The forests surrounding Rivendell?  The forest outside of Hobbiton where the Withywindle runs?  Or the forests of the Ents, perhaps??

externally:  [nods warily]
