You can’t make this up…

Here’s the set-up.  I asked my friend Ashley to tell her sister about our Thursday movie night.  So Ashley e-mailed her sister (and copied me) and said something like “Leah wanted to make sure you were aware of trivia night”  So this is the g-chat conversation we had right after I saw that e-mail.

me:  trivia?  you’re ridiculous
 Ashley:  hahaha
i meant movie night
i was just talking to someone about movie on twitter
 me:  about trivia?
or about movie??
 Ashley:  trivia
 me:  hahahahahahahaha

Do you have a floater?

This is how it all started. An administrative assistant appreciation lunch turned into something very wrong when my boss asked his secretary this question after she swung at the air a couple times.  Having little experience with this term, my friend and I looked at each other like “wtf????”.   Sure, it was funny.  But we were holding it together as the “floater conversation” progressed – that is, until our supervisor added “Oh yeah, I have lots of those.”  Both faces hit the napkins and stayed there as we endured comments like “My doctor says that everyone has floaters” and “You swung at them (the floaters) a couple times” and, in regards to the double-meaning of the word, “MY floater was born before YOUR floater.”

Yeah, Joel, that last one was your father.  Come to think of it, all three of those last ones were his.  *sigh*  To put it best, I’ll use the words of my boss’s secretary (who was not familiar with OUR floaters…) “Oh, the floaters?  I’m going to leave those alone.”

April 1st!

My boss is a huge fan of practical jokes.  So when I woke up yesterday, one of my first thoughts was, “he’s going to do something today.”  Well, me and two other co-workers from my department were coming back from the break room.  My friend scanned her card to unlock the door and gave it a nudge to open it.  The look on her face and the fact that she tried to scan her card again let me know that the door wasn’t opening.

Next thing I know, she’s laughing and pointing through the tiny window towards the floor on the other side.  I peek in and see the top of my boss’ pastel shirt as he his kneeling on all fours on the other side of the door.  When we attempt to push it open again, he jumps up, and in his thick, Cuban accent yells “APRIL 1ST!”
