Occasionally, people react to my thoughts and habits in a way that surprises me, but also really makes me laugh. Not too long ago, I already posted one conversation along those lines. I've had a few others since, with varying people.
One day at work:
I turned to a coworker and said "Did you know that if you Google Maps search the Nevada Test Site, you can look at the bomb craters?" I think this is very cool, by the way, in a chilling sort of way. A testament to an era of nuclear testing that was probably not the best of plans.
My coworker looked at me, glanced at the screen, and said "What is wrong with you?"
The other day when friends were over:
Friend: You know, most people have light bathroom reading. You have On Killing: The Psychological Cost of Learning to Kill in War. And oh yeah, the book that the movie Shooter was based on.
Me: There are some National Geographics in there as well.
Other friend: Bathroom reading is proportionate to IQ.
Upon receipt of an order of Chinese food:
Me: You know, take out bags don't seem nearly as happy anymore. I mean, look at that smiley face. It's really just kind of meh.
My fiancé : The shit you come up with. Takeout bags not happy anymore.
Another day at work:
Coworker, scanning books to see what people they go to: Jen, you might be taking your character things too far.
The book? Never Suck a Dead Man's Hand.
