A little funny

Sometimes I act weird.

Even at work.

I'm an IT Manager and when called to someones desk for help, I like to stand with chest puffed out and hands on hips like I'm superman or something. Yeah, I know...I'm a geek.

So the other day I was standing in the doorway of a co-worker's office in the aforementioned stance. She says to me, "So where's your cape?"

"Today's laundry day," I reply. "Crystal's washing it for me today."

We get a chuckle and that's the end of the first part of the story.

About a week later my co-workers are standing outside smoking and I decide that I could use some socializing so I go stand outside to chit-chat with them while they fumigate their lungs. I decide to stand in my super-pose again...I don't know why. Remember - I'm a geek. So the previously mentioned co-worker is there and says, "is your cape STILL in the laundry?" and I said, "what, you think I only ever wear it at work?"

We chuckle and then I said "you watch, I'll come to work one day wearing a cape."

She says "will you put a giant I.T. on the cape?"

"On the CAPE??? No! On my superman!"

Another lady in the group chimes in and says, "it?"

I explain, "I.T. - Information Technology"

"I know," she says "But that's what people will think when they see you. It?"

I get clever. "Well, I COULD title myself Super Human Information Technology."

No laughter. They didn't get it.

I had to explain it.

Then they laughed because it was VERY funny.

Maybe you had to be there.

OMG! A few years back, my husband's co-workers nicknamed him "SuperSteve", the computer superhero. I couldn't resist Photoshopping a little something for him. I'm going to e-mail it to Crystal. I think you'll get a kick out of it.

I look forward to seeing it! Maybe Crystal can photochop something for me too! Wait, she'll probably put earrings and necklaces on the image...oh great, now I'm giving her ideas!

Wait, you act weird "sometimes".

Hold on. I have to stop laughing...
