OK, not really, but I thought that would get your attention. Although a couple of times in the past couple of days (maybe it's because I've been sick and I'm sort of out of it?) it has definitely felt like I was living in a sitcom.
Yesterday, one of my normally very grounded event volunteers called after getting back from an Australian vacation.
Him: "I got a tattoo while I was there."
Me: "Really? What did you get?"
Me (totally kidding): "A kangaroo."
Me (can't help it, totally bursts out laughing): "No!" (I mean, this is like visiting Texas and getting a pair of cowboy boots tattooed on your ass, or visiting New York and getting the Statue of Liberty.)
Him: "Yes. And I can show it to you. It's on my shoulder. So I don't have to pull my pants down or anything."
I have known this person for almost four years, and he has never said anything like this. Perhaps he stumbled into quaaludes by mistake before calling me?
Then this morning, I went to a breakfast event for work. One of my volunteers also went, and we sat together. He didn't know I was a vegetarian, and said, "Oh, you didn't get any sausage, do you want some of mine?" Later on in an e-mail, I started thanking him for offering me his meat, but the more I typed, the worse it sounded.
"Thanks for offering me your sausage this morning..."
"Thanks anyhow for offering me some of your meat..."
How about you? Do you find humor everywhere?
