Oh boy, how do I explain this one? I told Mike this story at lunch* today and he advised me not to repeat it. However, I’m waiting for Beah’s clothes to finish in the washer so I have nothing else to do.
Sometimes I think of ideas, including jokes, while I’m still waking up. It’s at these times that I often come up with a creative solution to a problem at work or a great idea for a blog entry. But sometimes the idea is just silly.
This morning, for some reason I was thinking about the similarity of the words gaffe and giraffe. I thought it would be hilarious if I would make some incredible mistake, nay, a series of mistakes, involving giraffes. When the media covers it (in my half-conscious/half-dreaming state I must have thought I was famous), the headline could read: “Wysz’s biggest giraffe yet.” Get it?
I’m still giggling tonight just thinking about it.
*Lunch was awesome, by the way. Potstickers, bacon fried rice, some noodles, watermelon, and mini cinnamon cupcakes, which Mike described as “festive.” They did remind me of the holidays.
