You Always Take a Weird Exit off the Conversation Highway

Bible-thumping coworker: It’s my son’s 35th birthday today. I can’t believe my oldest is going to be 35.
Normal coworker: Oh? How many children do you have?
Bible-thumping coworker: Let’s see… I have three biological and one spiritual. But we’re much more than spiritual, really. It’s like we have this connection.
Normal coworker, to herself: Riiiiight.

We Should Talk Like This Less Often

Cube rat #1: I can’t explain my parents. They will have a problem with me dating a black guy, but the funny thing is my sister married a Jewish guy and they don’t seem to care. And, you know, what’s the difference between a black man and a white man? It’s just different skin colors. But there are real differences between Christian and Jewish people.
Cube rat #2: You’re absolutely right. Jewish people go to church on Saturday.
Cube rat #11: That’s right.
Cube rat #12: And they peel their food.
