I’m not sure if anyone else will find these little tidbits amusing, but I felt the need to share. Yesterday, I went swimming instead of running to give my shins a little break. Well, I was doing the back stroke and ended up ramming my head into the pool ledge (brilliant). I am thinking this may have contributed to my recent ditzy and haphazard actions, summarized below in no particular order of importance:
- Yesterday morning, we were nearing the end of a meeting at work. As the meeting was coming to a close, something, and I have no idea what, prompted me to say out loud to the entire group, “let’s rock and roll!” As in, “let’s get to work!” What in the world? No clue why that popped into my head or why I said it out loud. To compensate for what I had just inadvertently blurted out, I said, out loud again, “why did I just say that?” to no one in particular. Conversation with myself at a work meeting. Spectacular.
- On the way out of the office last night, a few co-workers and I stepped out of the building. I wasn’t watching where I was going so nearly rammed into a barricade. Which is no big deal except that I literally said sorry, to the barricade. What? “Oh sorry.” Seriously?
- I generally think I am a fairly patient person. However, this morning at work I fear that I actually lost my patience. We were at a meeting, which was supposed to be quick, but of course ended up going on for 45 minutes. People were asking ridiculous questions for which the person running the meeting could not give a straight answer. They were making things way more complicated than they needed to be; government efficiency at its finest. By minute 45, I was just about done. I didn’t say anything the entire meeting because it was all so ridiculous, but by minute 45, I simply asked, “are we done?” I’m sure I sounded like a complete bit*h, but apparently it struck a cord because everyone burst out laughing and we all promptly got up and left. Woops, did I say that?
