Monday Evening, 6 pm

cat_blog2The following conversation actually occurred this past Monday.  The names of the people talking have been purposely left out to protect the innocent.

“How was your day?”
“It was wonderful.  It was amazing.  I had so much fun at work, it was hard to come home.”
“My day was good too.  Actually, it was great.  I watched 5 episodes of Criminal Minds.  I can’t get enough of that show.  Do you think that government agents really look like that?”
“Let’s hope you never find out.”
“Doesn’t that show have crazed killers?”
“Yes, but the agents are all very attractive and well dressed, and they always catch the bad guy or girl.”
“What about Joe Mantegna?  What’s up with that eye?”
“What about that computer lady with the pink glasses?”
“Do you mean Penelope Garcia?”
“If that is her name, yes!”
“That is her name.  And she is the computer person.  She can find anything out about anyone in the world in a matter of seconds.”
“How does she do it?”
“I would think through a a combination of Microsoft Excel, Access, and excellent search tools.”
“You know everything, don’t you?”
“Yes, I do.  By the way, I thought of a new joke today.”
“Let’s hear it.”
“OK, here goes.  I just got my hospital bill, and now I think I am going into Anaphylactic Sticker Shock.”
“I don’t get it.”
“You know how sometimes people go into shock?”
“And have you heard the phrase ‘sticker shock’?”
“Now I see why you don’t get it.  Never mind.”
“But what does that mean, Anaphylactic Sticker Shock?”
“I am combining the two acts of being in anaphylactic shock, and being shocked by a bill.”
“Oh, I get it!  That’s a good one.  You could tell it at the hospital the next time you are committed.”
“It would put them in stitches.  Again.”
“By the way, I have a dentist appointment tomorrow.”
“What for?”
“She said I need to have some work done.  But I can only afford to have one tooth worked on this time.”
“What is the problem?”
“My teeth hurt when I smile.”
“Fortunately, for you that isn’t a problem.”
“What is this commercial on TV all about?  Blood pressure medicine often causes constipation?  Not for me.”
“Quite the opposite?”
“Yes, quite the opposite.”
“That must be nice.”
“Oh, it is.”
“I saw on the News that sources in the government have noticed an increase in chatter by criminal elements.”
“What do you think that means?”
“I think it means that they are probably very cold.”
“Are you ready to watch General Hospital?
“I’m always ready to watch GH.”
“I wonder what Helena will do next.”
“What do you mean?  She was shot by Luke in yesterday’s episode!”
“Oh, that’s right!  Do you think she is really dead?”
“I’m not sure.  You never know with that lady.”
