Mondays are for laughing
Unless we have an event on the weekend, my week begins on Monday. I don't know about you, but I indulge in a number of things on my days off, including weekends, and this includes staying up later. Needless to say, I'm tired most Mondays.
We laugh a lot in my office, and we have decided that this is a very good thing, considering the serious and sometimes difficult nature of the work we are doing.
So that combination - being tired and needing to laugh - seems to make things more funny on Mondays.
Take this conversation from today:
Me: "Do you like albacore tuna? I have some that no one in my house will eat."
Volunteer (thinking I had said "Albertina Kerr," which is a local nonprofit:) "You know, I've been trying to volunteer there, but I can never get a hold of them."
Me: "You want to volunteer at a fishery?"
Explanation and many fits of giggles followed.
Which reminded me of another funny thing, which we also laughed about - at the dentist's on Friday, someone with a name that sounded like "Herbert Stott" was paged over the intercom.
My hygienist paused and said, "Did that sound like 'Herbert Snot' to you?"
We laughed about that all day today, too.
