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.”
