Scenes from the Office

I picked up a slight cold on the trip last week to Seattle. I’m not sick enough to stay home, and there’s more than enough work that if I did, I’d get even sicker catching up. It also twists my sense of humor a little.

Coworker 1: Have a cold?

Me: Oh, thanks for the offer, but this one’s good enough.

Later…

Coworker 2: Are you sick? You look terrible.

Me: Oh, good; I’d hate to feel this bad and have it be my little secret…

(HT to Col. Sherman Potter for the last one.)

    LOL!

    I love it when people tell me “You look terrible.” It always lifts my spirits when I’m under the weather.

    And even more so when I’m not sick at all.

    I so much more of the humor this time around, as I was a wee one when the show was originally airing.

  4. A variation on Coworker 2:

    Coworker: You look awful!

    Me: Good to know the outside matches the inside.

    Used it last week.
