About A Guy, And A Stick

I might be stepping on her toes, but she didn't call dibs on this one (of course neither did I). Beth came to my office this afternoon because my coworkers wanted to throw us a little baby shower. (An aside: As much as I often bitch about work, the people I work with are awesome. And none of them read this so its not like I'm sucking up here either.) So, we're sitting there and people are filing into the conference room. Its kinda awkward and I'm not the most comfortable person being in the spotlight. And I'm aware of the fact that Beth doesn't really know most of these people. I start getting a little anxious for her. So, yeah, a little nervous energy sparked some quiet nervous conversation between the two of us.

Her: So, when do they start the limbo?
Me: Oh, consultants really get crazy. Anytime now.
Her: I'm sure they wouldn't miss a chance to see a pregnant girl limbo.
Me: Nope. Never.
Her: And look! That guy even brought a stick!
Me: Uh...that's the blind guy who works on our floor. That's his cane.

The funniest thing is, she really was completely oblivious for a couple seconds there. Of course, no one ever figured out what we were laughing about and the whole thing turned out just fine.

That's so funny!

Really nice of your coworkers, btw. Glad you had a good time!

No fair! You know this totally should have been mine.

And I caught on very quickly that it was his cane. Just not quickly enough to stop myself.

That is really funny.

Don't bet that nobody reads though. I would have sworn that too, but I was wrong.

Ooh - that is a good one! I was laughing for awhile there :-)

There was this guy in my old neighborhood who I thought was really unfriendly or possibly a serious drug addict. He would stand just outside his condo door and let his little dog run out to take care of business, but would never acknowledge me or my dog when we went by. He always wore sunglasses.

And then one day I saw him actually walking to get in a cab with his cane and I realized...he was blind. In my defense, he didn't use the cane when he let the dog out. I guess he could make it out the door and back without it.

I love it when a plan comes together. That was nice.

Heehee. Hope you scored some goodies for Bean!

Chris, sorry I missed you yesterday. Happy Belated Daddy's Day!

That is funny, you were right to post this one before she had a chance.

If she gets to have the belly pics than you should get the really funny stories.

Mind you her belly pics are going to get google hits a lot more than making fun of blind people but hey, what can you do?

I'm not wishing you Happy Father's Day until the baby is breathing oxygen instead of ... uh... nevermind. ;)

Hope you and Beth got some good prezzies!
