Because I didn’t have a FFFF this Friday I’m sharing some interesting conversations I’ve had with my roommate and friends over the past little while.
(at a figure skating competition)
Friend: This is really cool!
Me: I know. Today we’re just watching the Juniors but I’m really excited because tomorrow I’m going to see the Seniors for Ice Dancing.
Friend: They have figure skating for seniors? Isn’t that dangerous?
(At the New York Museum of Natural History front desk)
Me: I’m a student
Clerk: Ok. What’s your zip code?
Me: (surprised) I need to know a code?
Clerk: Your zip code?
Me: Is that something they give to students here?
Roommate: I wish I could go help on the oil spill.
Me: I know. You just feel so helpless watching.
Roommate: But also I’d get to see cool new animals! Maybe they’d let me clean a beluga!
Me: Um, I don’t think there are belugas in the Gulf of Mexico!
Roommate: Well I don’t know where this thing is!
Me: Well right now they’re broadcasting this show from Louisiana.
Roommate: Wait, Louisiana has a water border? I always thought it was in the middle!
Me: Like Kansas?
Roommate: If that’s a trick question I’m not answering!
(at the US Capitol Visitor Centre)
Me: I’m trying to figure out who most of these statues are.
Friend: Look at that one by the entrance (points to a statue of a girl next to a water pump).
Me: Yeah. That’s Alice in Wonderland.
Friend: I’m pretty sure it’s Helen Keller.
Me: Oh. That makes more sense.
Me: I don’t have anything wrong with people who are polyamorous, but I’m not sure I want to be in a relationship with someone who’s really adamant about it.
Roommate: What do you have against people who can write with both hands?
