Nothing very exciting happened at work (or life in general) today so here is a little diddy (not about Jack and Diane...unless Jack is short for Jacquline, but I digress) that I've been saving for a day like this when I had nothing else to write.
A couple of months ago I was out to lunch with my friend J when we somehow got onto the topic of another friend of ours, L, who had just started dating someone new.
[here's the scene of us sitting at Panera chowing down]
J-It cracks me up, I mean L is just so butch.
Me-Really, L is butch? Isn't that the homo calling the dyke gay.
J-(choking on her sweet tea) What the? Homo calling the dyke gay...wow. Honestly, do you come up with this stuff out of nowhere, or do you have to think of them in advance?
Me-Normally, I come up with them on the spot and they pop out before I can stop them, but that little diddy I've been saving in my aresenal for a while.
J-(hesitating) Do you mind if I steal it?
Me-Nope, have at it...but don't use it flippantly...I mean I saved that for a good moment....don't go wasting the good moment for a mediocre one (side note: anyone else just hear, "We wasted the good surprise on you!" in their head? Extra points if you can reference the movie!)
J-Cool, thanks...no pressure or anything....
Me-Nope no pressure...just don't screw it up...and give credit where credit is due
