“Don’t call them nipples! They’re tits!”

Said my co-worker to her two sons (ages 11 and 14) attempting to teach them a lesson about a calf feeding from its mother. And she thought she was in the right when she reiterated this story to me. I completely fell apart laughing at her, and then corrected her with “teats.” Imagine the damage control that she had to do!!!

Meg and Doug on marriage

Two of our board members had the following conversation tonight. (Meg is a young woman who just got married and Doug is an older, conservative man).

Meg: I'm keeping my last name.
Doug: Oh.
Meg: Yeah.
Doug: I thought you got married.


Self-absorbed much?

Joy to Becky, "Not everything is about you."

Becky to Joy, "If I had a nickel for every time you assholes said that..."

"I don't blame him for doing that."

Said by my mom, after pointing out how long you have to wait for a green light in Clifton Park, and then observing the man in front of us drive through a yellow light at the next intersection. So I said to her, he didn't do anything WRONG. What is it that you're not blaming him for?
We both started to giggle. I love my mom.
