Stupid Things I Say

January 11, 2011

I went over to the post office this morning because I had an oversized envelope to mail. I walked in the door and the guy working behind the counter looks up and says, “Hi!” and I say, “Hi, I have an envelope to mail.”

Then I had one of those “Duh” moments.

Why else would I walk into the post office with an oversized envelope in my hand if I wasn’t there to mail the oversized envelope?

Yeah, no reason.

So then why did I have to tell the counter clerk that I had an envelope to mail?

I guess it was one of those moments when I had to say something because something was said to me and in the fraction of the second it took for whatever synapses to fire off whatever electronic activity was needed to create a thought and put words to that thought and send that thought to my mouth, all my humble age-shrinking brain could come up with in that 1/1,000,000,000,000th of a second was something embarrassingly obvious. Sort of like in the fourth paragraph above when I answered my own rhetorical question. Why do I do that?

Why do I do that, I ask? Ha! I won’t fall for the same trick twice!

    I do the same times and like you, keep asking me why I did that.
    But just to say I always chek your blog, even if I don’t let a comment.
