Listening to: Game 5
Thought for the day: “Carpe Diem” does not mean “fish of the day.” ~Author Unknown
It’s Thursday which means the parking lot where I work looks more like a boat dealership on steroids than a place for employeesto park. Every Thursday, the mechanics that I work with cast their lines after work to see who can catch the most fish by weight. They take it very seriously.
This morning when I walked into the mechanic’s shop, Cliff the mechanic came at me with his hand in a fist seeking a bump.
Cliff: “Bump me KB.”
I obeyed and fist bumped Cliff.
Me: “Why am I fist-bumping you?”
Cliff: “I need good luck so I’ll win the fishing tournament tonight. You’ll bring me good luck.”
Me: “So what you’re saying is you just sucked all my luck out?”
Cliff: “Well…… YES.”
Me: “YOU ARE A LUCK SUCKER!”
We both were laughing when another mechanic who had heard pieces of the conversation plowed in and said, “What’s a luck licker?”
In the name of propriety, Cliff and I both walked away quickly.
I’m pretty sure I work in a TV sitcom.
