Post #600, Or, truth is dumber than fiction.
So yesterday I got a call from one of the informational directories updating our contact information.
Him: "And are you still at (our old address)?"
Me: "No, I have a new address to give you."
Him: "Why, did you move?"
Me: "Yes, that's why we have a new address."
I kid you not. Someone is paying this person a salary!
And last week at our writing group, we had a couple of other groups going at the same time in another room. One of my group participants asked, "Why can't we just close the doors?"
She had walked past the doors...which were off the hinges because the doorframes were being redone.
Still, I very patiently said, "We can't close the doors because they're off the frames right now, because of the remodel."
Once again: "But why can't we just close the doors?"
I really wanted to say, "Because I don't like you, that's why."
Every once in awhile I wonder why I quit drinking!
And yes, there *are* lolcats for just about everything.
