More weird stuff that somehow goes on between me and my family and friends…
Me (holding a butter knife while balancing a plate): “Whoa, this could be dangerous”
Friend: “Careful you don’t shank anyone.”
Me (making a stabbing motion in the air and dropping the knife almost immediately): “Oh. I’m a terrible prisoner.”
In a kickboxing class practicing a spin kick that looks very cool
Me (under my breath): “I’m a ninja!”
Kickboxing Coach (Choke-laughing): “What did you say?”
Years ago after I had just earned my Master’s degree and was looking for a job
Grandpa: You should carry your resume with you in your bag at all times.
Me: That’s a really good idea Grandpa, I should do that.
Grandpa: Because you never know when you meet a man on the bus who needs a secretary.
My Nephew was watching me knit a blue and green dish cloth
Nephew: Aunt Laurie, will you knit me a sweater?
Me: Of course! What color do you want?
Nephew: Um, I think blue and green.
Me: Oh. OK. Sure, I’ll knit you a blue and green sweater.
(10 minutes later)
Nephew: Is it done yet?
