Let's get this post started off with a bang (pun intended as you'll soon see). I sent this text message to various friends and family bright and early this morning. This incident was on my mind as I drove in to work. I like to think that normal people send Monday morning texts that say something like, "Good morning! How was your weekend?" Here's what I sent (with a typo, should be "ate" not "at"):
The response above made me laugh until tears rolled down my face. I was all alone in my office laughing like an insane, hysterical woman. Though now that I think of it, my coworkers are probably used to this. Then I received this reply which set me off again:
I swear, this is the best Monday morning I've had in ages. And I will never again hear the words "Bengay" or "Lawrence Welk" without thinking to myself, "Ah yes, safe words used by the elderly".
This next thing happened last Friday afternoon. It's a work-email exchange between me and my friend in our IT department. It made me laugh which made me deem it share worthy:
I've found that it's fun to just say "No" when asked to do things at work. Everyone is so used the polite response of "Yes" that they are taken aback to hear the opposite. I do it jokingly sometimes just to see the reaction the other person has. You definitely need to know your audience though. This only works with people who have a good sense of humor. Don't try it on someone who will immediately go tattle on your ass to Human Resources. Which reminds me of this tweet which I absolutey loved:
New topic... this past weekend my son and I watched "Return of the Jedi". It was his first time seeing the movie but he already knew the storyline from playing Star Wars Lego games on the iPad. At one point in the movie Yoda said, "Skywalker" and my son gasped, which led to this conversation:
Later I googled different versions of "foul-mouthed Yoda" or "Yoda says curse words" but I didn't find anything. I was going to include a clip in this post. Now that Disney owns Star Wars they probably have someone whose job it is to scour the internet to make sure that there are no YouTube clips of Yoda being obscene. Dammit. I'll probably get a "cease and desist" letter just for posting my text messages. Oh well. Until that day comes I'm leaving this up. Yeah. That'll show the man. Now I'm going to sit here for a second and feel all smug and superior for being such a rebel. Feel free to join me if you'd like. You just read my words so you're equally guilty. Feels good, doesn't it?
I'm the worst kind of asshole-- I think I'm funny.
