Thursday Snippet

(In an effort to boost my readership (which is coming along nicely, and I'm an ungrateful wretch for wanting to it to grow even faster), I've decided to try an experiment. Since people seem to enjoy my lists, each item of which is just a very brief version of my usual posts, I'm going to try to post miniature observations/overheard conversations on my non-full-length post days. Let me know what you think, yay or nay.)

Overheard in the office a number of years ago:

Guy: "Have you ever heard of that drink called a screaming orgasm?"
Gal: "I've heard of them, but I've never had one.

I kid you not.

I like the idea of having something to read every day :)

And I think everyone has heard (or participated in) essentially that conversation....

Aw Jeanne - you read waiterrant too? I saw your comment. Im still trying to read my way thru his archives. Think I am back in 2005. Anyway when I worked in an optical shop a lady walked in with her broken glasses and told the optician that she needed "a big screw" and then got all embarrassed. We laughed about that one all day.

I'm a big fan of the short, but funny posts.

I vote yay.

Hee. Hee. I LOVE it. And you know the poor girl had no idea what she was saying!

Thanks so much for stoppping by my blog today. The SITS feature was so much fun, and I really appreciate all the wonderful comments. I hope you'll come back to visit again soon!

Okay. ***looks around for David Blaine*** I swear, five minutes ago there was a pig joke posted here, and now it's DISAPPEARED! Just in case I'm NOT losing my grip, I think I found the little porker mentioned in that now-you-see-it-now-you-don't blog! (Stay tuned all the way through the video clip as she isn't featured until the very end.) ***sweeps the blog one more time for Mr. Blaine and the missing joke*** That IS odd. I think this calls for a drink. Perhaps a Screaming Orgasm?

love it! Man just imagine what we might be reading if you were ever a waitress...

I say I will love whatever you decide!

OMG I'm already starting to morph. There is a photograph of the author with Mr.Scott in the Alumni room...I am so impressed. Bill must be like Mt. Rushmore overseeing the Mississippi River on speed.

Dr. Robert Newton has been sending me text messages with photos of Catherine Rizza attached. Steven G will be contacting you soon. The NECC has been wanting me for over 31 years. Wait!...Jeannie...there is a van outside. There are people coming. I know them! They are from WPAFB!!!! Now,I hear a helicopter! I'll tell Steven to save your blogs for me. They are knocking at the door. I've been expecting the knock at the door. My God, it's Catherine Rizza herself! I'll be back if I can. Crikey! Fancy!I know it's time for me to go! Godspeed!!! Always remember the frozen connectors on Fifth Street on nights like this as they sliced through the ice crusted wires causing flashes on our bedroom walls......They're here.

Pretty good for an ungrateful wench! So I say go for it girl! :)

Coffee with Cathy said...

I love whatever you write -- I think it's fun to mix things up. And I loved the pig joke. How have I never heard this before? Embarrassing!
