[Overheard] – "How do I get balls?"

grab bag, wackiness

Officemate:  So I got everything all set for the event.  Computers, powerstrips, food.  Only thing I forgot was chairs! [smacking forehead]
Me:  Why don’t you use these instead? [pointing to one of the inflatable balls we have in our office for sitting on]
Officemate: [looking intrigued, yet uncertain]  Hmm!  How do I get balls?!
Me:  [incredulous pause, then uncontrolled laughter]

Luckily my officemates have a good sense of humor 😀

    Oh that really was funny! I think it’s great that y’all have a sense of humor!  How red did his/her face turn?

    Glad you were amused, Marlene and Paige!  And my officemate (a guy) was actually pretty unfazed 😀

    Heh, APfB, I can’t help but think it’d be entertaining working for one of the companies that *makes* these balls.  Either that, or perhaps they have a clause in their employment contract: “NOTE:  Immature jokes about balls have gotten old here years ago.  Any ball-related humor is punishable by termination…” 😛
