Autocompletes

We all have autocompletes - the verbal equivalent of no cartoon being able to hear "shave and a haircut" without supplying the missing "two bits". You hear a word or two, and your brain HAS to fill it in. Just has to.

So I was talking about my sister tonight - about how she's 26 and still lives at home with my parents paying half her bills and giving her spending money "and here I am -" and, with only the slightest of pauses, filled in one of the below autocompletes.

Adam laughed. I said "Well, I had to!"

Adam said, "Yeah - it's just that I would have said -" the other autocomplete.

So which one would've been yours?

And which one do you think is mine, and which Adam's?

"Here I am..."

... brain the size of a planet..."
53(49.5%)
... rock you like a hurricane!"
54(50.5%)
