Ra­di­ol­o­gist re­cep­tion­ist to der­ma­tol­ogy pa­tient with the wrong num­ber: I’m sor­ry, I think you have the wrong num­ber. Dr. Green’s of­fice is just down the hall; the ex­ten­sion is 1234. You’re wel­come. Buh-bye.
(pause, then an­swers again)
Re­cep­tion­ist: No, you’ve got the wrong ex­ten­sion again. Dr. Green is at 1234. It’s no prob­lem. You’re wel­come. Buh-bye.

Col­orado: It’s Out of This World (Al­leged­ly)

Work­er #1: Oh, did­n’t I tell you I’m mov­ing to Col­orado?
Work­er #2: Re­al­ly? When?
Work­er #1: I leave next week, but I de­cid­ed I would move to Col­orado when I was six. That’s when I heard John Den­ver sing “Rocky Moun­tain High.“
Work­er #2: That’s why you’re mov­ing to Col­orado?
Work­er #1: Well, and be­cause it’s so hot here be­cause of all the glob­al warm­ing go­ing on. You know, they don’t have that in Col­orado.
