STUPID QUESTIONS


Have you ever really thought about those stupid questions that people ask in what would ordinarily be considered an abnormal situation? For example, you may be in the middle of the reception area at the doctor's office on your hands and knees, nose pushed to the floor -- invariably, some smart-elbow comes in and says, "Are you looking for something?" You take a deep breath, look back at the floor, and then brightly say, "Well, no, actually. I just ran out of tissues and I'm wiping my nose on the carpet."

Or how about the time you were sitting in a meeting and spilled hot, hot coffee on yourself...coffee so hot that your blouse was steaming, and someone says, "Is it hot?" Rolling your eyes, you respond, "No, those aren't blisters. I had implant surgery last weekend."

Amazing, it really is!

.... or when you've tripped over in the street and blood is pouring from your nose, a 10 inch gash on your leg and some bright spark stops and asks you for the time??!!!

Nice blog. Thought I'd just pop by to say hi. My cat also has a blog, but as he has a very hectic social life and mine is virtually non-existent, he leaves it to me to do the waffling ;>
