Overheard

My friend scored free tickets to the hockey game tonight. Yes, nashville has a NHL hockey team. It was a preseason game but still it was a preseason game and i had nothing better to do especially as the beloved Astros weren’t playing on TV. Thankfully they won and kept our slim hopes alive for another day. So during the game i was keeping track of the Astro’s progress via mobile and watching the predator’s pound Atlanta (some irony there).

We were milling around after the 2nd period and were talking about how it sucked that the Card’s won today and that they should have never pitched to pujol’s , in the prior game, in the 9th inning and a couple of attractive but inebriated ladies nearby overheard us and left us two memorable quotes.
“Pujol’s! I love Pujol’s, well i don’t like it in the poo hole but i love Pujol’s”

“I was just trying to be obedient and said sure i’ll BLOW !”

the last quote was in reference to her field sobriety test and DUI arrest where she blew a (in her words) “point one point 6 . TWICE the legal limit”.

Thankfully for all of us they take a cab everywhere now.

Thought Balloons

This morning i had an entertaining meeting where i was able to interact with someone new. Within minutes of my arrival  I was insulted by this person whom I had just met, so we were already off to an inauspicious start. He posed a question to me a few minutes later, though i doubt he really understood the breadth and scope of the question and the answer it required. I hesistated in forming a response and before I could utter a word he interrupts with, ” I need a yes or a no and i don’t need pensive look.” the thought bubble going through my head at the time was…

actually @$$hole i was trying to gauge how much of an idiot you are so i can dumb the answer down so you could even remotely understand…

at least he was helpful, obviously he can only understand monosyllabic words.

By the way the answer was – Yes.
