Obviously, I'm just a pervert


I had lunch today with a hospital executive who wants to get more involved with what we do at work. He mentioned that he had to watch what he was eating since he was doing Jenny Craig.

"But this is OK today," he said. "I got laid last night."

Um. WHAT?

I turned about 50 shades of red and he said, "What? I just said I got weighed last night."

Then we both burst into uncontrollable laughter.

Earlier in the day I almost choked on a cookie when one of our volunteers, referring to someone on the sponsor prospect list for an event said, "And when Dick comes in..."

OK, I'm just a pervert.

My brain will always twist things I *think* people are saying when they're totally innocuous. Is there a medical explanation for this? And am I the only one that does this? Inquiring minds want to know!

I have always felt sorry for people named "Dick". And to answer your inquiry...yes.

G said...

You do know that I'm a prime example of doing that type of stuff, right?

I built an etire blog post around the phrase "What do you need stuffed?".

I'm think yes, RK. :) But I'll bet that guy was flattered that you thought that.

I used to weigh people at Jenny Craig. I had that job for two years - working on the weekend when I was in school full time. Let me tell you - not easy.

So, this guy isn't banging Jenny Craig?

I'm amused by double entendres too. I don't see anything wrong with that. Some people make a living out of such jokes.
Thanks for this fun post.

All the best, Boonie

Joey: I thought so ;)
GA: I know! Why don't they go by, I don't know, Rich? Rick? Richard?
G: True! You're one of us. I don't feel quite so lonely now.
L: He did say, "Hopefully I'll be able to say that next time!" And yeow! I can't imagine having to do that job...I bet your ears were burning.
WIGSF and Ileana: I didn't even think of that! Is there an actual Jenny Craig person?
M: Join the club! :)

This happens to me pretty often. Once when Kaiser was a puppy we took him into a pet store. Afterward Justin was like, "Did you hear those ladies talking about Kaiser's huge balls?"
I was like, "WHAT? They were talking about his balls???" Cuz his balls were really tiny.
He was like, "Yeah, they couldn't believe how big his balls were! You didn't hear them?"
So we go back and forth in this vein until he's staring at me totally bewildered and then I realized he was talking about Kaiser's PAWS.
Those legitimately were large.

CB: Hahahaha!
