Okay, kids, it's been a while since we've had a Random Thursday. And, since I got nothing else, well, here we go, the most interesting things of the week.
Interesting defuser / excuse / go-jump-in-the-lake expression:
I'm so sorry; I am unable to help you with that. Is there any other way I might help?
Repeat as necessary.
Him: I think you are working too hard.
Him: Well, I think I should start washing the dinner dishes and sweeping the kitchen floor every day.
Him: Well, it's really all I can do to help.
All I can think of are the other 379 things I do in a day. Mother says, "Be grateful! At least it is more than he has been doing." I now understand how she and my father have stayed married nearly 60 years. It is a war of atrition...
Interesting Text Message:
You have a daughter-in-law.
Interesting Co-worker exchange:
Him: I need more help with the mundane things in our department and I think you are probably smart enough to take on at least one.
Interesting random student statement:
"I like girls." from a girl... out of nowhere... in class... awkward.
Who's up for a road trip? I think I need one....
What's been interesting in your world this week??
