I have always said I can laugh at myself. Someone, I don’t remember who, once said that if you don’t laugh at your self, you might be missing the best joke in history. And today was no exception. The names of the people involved are deleted to protect those who don’t want to admit they converse or associate with me. One friend of mine sent me a groupon link to superhero pajamas that were on sale. Women’s superhero pajamas. Skintight, form fitting, women’s superhero pajamas. And after a comment was made that I wanted batgirl’s abs, and I replied that I wanted batgirl, and her abs, I had to forward the link to another friend. The following is a shortened version of the conversation after I sent the link.
Me: Someone just sent me that link and I don’t know how to take it.
Her: Maybe they think you dress up like a girl.
Me: Well, I do, but I cannot fit into those.
Her: Or may they think that is the only way you can get into a girls pj’s. 😛 I should have said that first.
I couldn’t stop laughing. That was funny, really funny. And I can just picture her actually saying that. I mean, I was laughing so hard I started crying. Not the best behavior in an office, but I found that comment funny.
And, I have to disagree with her; the order of the comments was to perfection. The first one was a solid cheap shot; the second was a much funnier cheap shot. You always want to follow with the funnier comment. If the second comment is less funny, it’s going to be a letdown.
I thought I would share this story… hopefully give you a laugh at my expense.
