Fragmented Friday Freewrite

“ I don’t talk trash; I talk smack. They’re totally different. Trash talk is all hypothetical like ‘Your Mama’s so fat she could eat the internet’ but smack talk is happening like right now, like you’re ugly and I know it for a fact cause I got the evidence right here."
-Kelly Kapoor, The Office


Would you judge me if I told you a small piece of me wants to buy this shirt?

Why? Why do I have to be the one to try to be funny? Or say something to fill the silence? This s the story of my life.
SARCASTIC COMMENT????? Pictures, Images and Photos
It's back to school time (I work at a university), so we had an orientation (or as they say on The Office, more like booorientation) to go over all the normal stuff & meet the new faces in our college. Well, as an introductory activity, the dean had us go around and introduce ourselves, say what we do, and then answer the question: "Do you think you are paid what you're worth?" Wow. Really? That's awkward. When he said it, there was a bunch of nervous laughter. So it started around the room and most people gave the generic, "I love what I do so it doesn't matter blah blah blah." Well, you know me, I can't just say something normal. So next thing you know, I'm up to bat and say, "Well I'm just a little shocked to hear all of y'all are getting paid...I thought this was a volunteer position." As soon as I said it I thought, what have I done?! Fortunately they all laughed and appreciated my quick wit. But still. I should work on giving cookie-cutter answers and not trying to be the class clown.

  3. A cat named Help!? How odd.

    I wouldn't judge you for buying that shirt. I think it's funny and silly.

    I don't watch The Office, but everyone is always saying how funny it is. I might have to check it out soon.

    Happy FF!

  4. I wasn't the class clown in school, but I think I have turned into one. My head always has something sarcastic to say (and sometimes my mouth says it!).

  5. "The Office" humor is so funny! And...a cat named Help? Poor babe! (Although we get a lot of strange responses when we tell them that our kitty is Puffy! And since Puff Daddy or P. Diddy has hit the scene, we call her Puff Kitty or P. Kitty! :)

  7. Oh, don't change to cookie-cutter responses, the Class Clown is always so much more fun - and appreciated! :)

    That T-Shirt is cool! I'd buy it! ;)

    A cat named 'Help'? That's even more funny than a friend of mine who named her cat 'Fuzz Butt'. ;)

    Happy FF! :)

  10. I say go ahead and be the class clown. I enjoy a good laugh, especially in a setting that is decidedly UN-funny. Sarcasm is our friend!

  11. LOL at the whole post....btw, I love Kelly Kapoor. I bet there were a lot of people in the room who wished they said that. Too funny! I'm one of those people who think of something witty 10 minutes after the moment has passed.

    I'm glad I found you in the blogosphere. I need a good laugh more often than not these days.

  12. A cat named Help. Interesting! LOL!

    Also loved your response to the question at the orientation! I think you made it less of a boorientation! :-)

    Happy Friday!

  13. Oh Sarah ~ thank you for making my day! I love it and I wish I was quick with my humor. I'm always saying..dam, I wish I would have said this or that. Have a wonderful weekend!

    Hugz,
    Michele

  14. That shirt is awesome...I'd wear it.

    I saw something in Reader's Digest about funny pet names...but none were that extreme. Who would name their pet "Help" that does not seem logical?

    ReplyDelete
  15. I am the same way...always trying to fill the awkward silence! I say go for the shirt :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Oh, I definitely wouldn't judge you for the t-shirt....I'd probably tell you to get one for me too. I LOVE The Office! It's hilarious. The whole post made me giggle...too funny!

    ReplyDelete
  17. love it! and i love your quick wit, don't change to the norm! be who you are! :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. NO! NO! NO! You be you! Your wit is a part of the lovely self that you are. Celebrate it and do not give the same old boring answers.

    And Kelly is friggin' hilarious!

  19. Hey, every group needs a class clown. Are you the baby in your family? Babies of the family are often class clowns. As long as your humor isn't mean-spirited, I don't see anything wrong with it. I loved your booreintation comment! :)

    I used to have to fill the silence in social situations. My reason was that I couldn't stand the intimacy of just sitting with someone and not talking. I am NOT saying that's your reason--I'm just sayin'...

    Thanks for playing FF! Have a great weekend.

  26. That story was too funny! I love that you made that joke!

  27. Your answer was great! Pat answers are boring. Keep it up!

    Why would somebody name their cat Help? Come ON!

    Buy the shirt. :)

  28. Who calls their cat Help? Crazy person. *L*
    I once said to my boss, who was getting all excited at a big meeting and talking in a high pitched voice "Only cats and dogs can hear you now". After the stunned silence, everyone, including her...thank the llama...laughed. Sheesh, that was a close one. My mouth doesn't run away anymore but when it did, it was kinda fun. So I feel ya! xx

  29. The way I see it --if there was never anyone to make you laugh ---how dull would that be.
