Plan to go nowhere

This afternoon while having some fun at the expense of the English language, we were talking about some strange American English usage.   Fr Michael narrated this following piece of conversation between two American seminarians who wanted to go out for a walk.
"Would you like to join me for a walk, this evening?"
"Where are you planning to go?"
"Nowhere."
"Then, I'll join you." 
That's quite a plan: to go nowhere!! Well the point is 'nowhere in particular' but I suppose we can always enjoy a good laugh!
