This and that (and how to use condoms)

A few funny things -

Mr. RK had a meeting with a bunch of people today, and two of them were arguing about who would get an answer to his question first. This, even though they both asked the question at the same time, and asked the same question.

Mr. RK told me this story, and I asked, "Who stopped the arguing?" That would be Mr. RK's boss, who said,  "Shut up, both of you! This isn't your meeting." And up they shut.

In the category of "I couldn't make this up" - I got an email at work from someone asking if she should donate to our organization, or would it be better to donate to research? Part of my job is fundraising. I wonder how much of my job it would remain if I had written her back and said, "Research, definitely. Take your money elsewhere, lady." I mean, I have to wonder: was that one of the possible answers she was expecting?
Not funny in itself, but one of the kiddo's latest antics was to climb up on the roof of his group home, smoke cigarettes, and refuse to come down. The funny part was what he said after I found out.

Him: "I didn't know people knew I went up on the roof! That's embarrassing!"
Me: "You should have thought of that beforehand, obviously."
Him: "Well, you'll be proud of me though - I wore the hat and gloves you bought me, so I stayed very warm!"
Right! I'm to be proud because prior to becoming smoking Spiderman, he thought to wear warm clothing. I didn't think to ask how he got down, come to think of it.

Lastly, we received "tuxedos" and "extra strength" condoms for our holiday bag project. (If you haven't read about that yet, here you go.)

Everyone in the office asked, "What are tuxedos?" I had no idea so I opened the box. (Answer: black latex condoms. Which makes me wonder about where the white? - never mind, let's not go there.)

Guess what I found inside the box?

The volunteer who started this project, God love her, said, "That's no fun! What if I want multicolored ones and instructions in Ukranian?" Yes, that is why she will be my friend until one of us leaves this planet.

Friends like that should be cherished. And cloned.
And I love that your influence made the boy 'dress warm'. Smiles.

Black condoms, great for having safe sex and still funeral appropriate.

Ahhh, fundraising. I work for an NPR affiliate, and we are about to start our December fundraiser. It's a lot of work, isn't it?

I need to find some of those, uh, tuxedos!

Charles Gramlich said...

Ahh, another world. Sometimes visiting your blog is like visiting Talera. :)

Gotta love how "ignorance is bliss" is part and parcel of raising a teenager. :D

So.........can we call you "Trojan Woman"?

Lee said...

The condoms should be called "Fuxedos"!

Abby said...

I think it's awesome he wore the hat and gloves, but did he wear a condom? "Tuxedo" or "extra strength"? Ah... to be a teenager again...

Granny Annie said...

Also new corduroy condoms for a groovy kind of love.

Maybe I haz no brain today but why Ukranian? My wife likes to ask the waitresses at restaurants, "Is the food good here?" I really don't know if she really expects an honest answer.

Lynn said...

lol! Your friend sounds awesome. :)

DWei said...

Heh, this reminds me of the joke condoms that my brother and I exchanged for Christmas one year.

We found it hilarious, our parents, not as much.

People can be so dense at times. Asking the fundraiser where they should donate is rather obtuse but I guess it works out in your favor she didn't ask the same question of someone in the research department.

Really?...the kid went up on the roof? Scary...I guess you can be secure in the knowledge when he breaks his neck, he won't have a stuffy nose to deal with. It probably says something good about the fact he wanted you to know he was using the gloves and hat you gave him. (you are such a good person)
