Over the last fortnight I’ve had some hilarious conversations with various people and so I thought I’d post some of the highlights that I have experienced. It’s hard to remember everything word for word so I’m probably paraphrasing a fair bit but everything here has definitely happened. Reality is stranger than fiction! 😉
X: So what?
Me: So what’s the big surprise you were promising me?
X: That was it.
Me: What? What was it?
X: Just then.
Me: What do you mean? You mean your story about enjoying a delicious salmon dinner?
Me: How is THAT a surprise?
X: Well…I thought it was a surprise.
Me: You enjoying a nice meal isn’t a surprise!
X: Oh, yeah I suppose if you put it that way…
Me: You built up all that suspense for THAT!?
X: [starts laughing]
Z: So can I drink wine?
Z: Yes, here.
Me: Here in the library?
Me: Errrr nope! You can’t drink wine in the library.
Z: Awww really?
Y: I wish I could read Japanese.
Me: Yeah, me too!
Y: What do you think this brush is for?
Me: It’s got a picture of a bum on it!
Me: Maybe it’s something to use on your ass? Getting rid of cellulite perhaps?
Y: A brush for your ass… That’s hilarious! [starts using the brush on his forearm] The bristles feel a bit harsh.
Me: Really? Try it on me! [stretches out arm a little]
Y: Huh? What? On your ass!? In front of all these people!!?
Me: No! I meant on my arm!
Y: Oh. Ohhhh. [breathes sigh of relief] That… That makes more sense.
W: I mean I feel like I’m suffering from Stockholm syndrome with him but apart from that it’s fine.
Me: Stockholm syndrome?
W: A li’l bit.
Me: Stockholm syndrome?
W: Yeah. [starts laughing]
Me: Isn’t it a bit of a bad sign when you start comparing your relationship to freakin’ Stockholm syndrome!?
W: Most likely.
Me: So don’t you wanna do something about it? Stand up for yourself? Assert your independence? Kick him to the curb?
W: Well I’ve got a lot on at the minute so I’m probably just gonna leave things as they are until January.
Me: Fair enough then.
W: [starts laughing again]
Me: Oh wow! That one over there? That is a terrible book!
V: [stares at me]
V: [continues staring at me]
Me: What!? What is it?
V: Did you actually read it?
V: Did you really?
Me: I…listened to the audio book.
V: Aha! I knew it.
Me: What’s that supposed to mean?
V: You never read!
Me: Well I’m always busy drawing or working so audio books work better for me and… Hey, I do too read!
V: Oh really? Name something you’ve read recently.
Me: I’ve read–
V: That ISN’T a comic or graphic novel.
Me: Well now you’re just not playing fair!
V: [starts laughing]
And that’s the end of my flashbacks to the hilarious events of the past fortnight. You’ll notice that a few of these entries end in the other person laughing with (or at) me. It actually happens a lot! I like to think that giving people the gift of giggles is a good thing, even if it is at my expense sometimes he he! 😉
Take care everyone and have yourselves a brilliant weekend! 😀
