This is very exciting, dear reader. I've posted twice! In one day!
I find myself with spare time between classes today, so I write instead. This is a much better use of my time than, say, what I was doing last semester when I had two hours free between classes and emailed myself constantly. Same concept, different media and I don't get double emailed. A Win-Win situation, I believe is the term.
I have this shirt, see. It's a generic Outer Banks, NC shirt, except that it reads "Hello, my name is Rodger and I will be flogging you today" on the back. This is fairly important.
Throughout the day, I periodically forget what shirt it is that I'm wearing. Today is one of those days. So I went out to get McDonalds, and instead of drive thru, I figured what would be the harm in going into the store and getting it to go that way.
After I ordered, I went around the side to get my soda, and all of the sudden there is loud laughter from behind me. I figure someone had shared a joke with someone else and was being very merry about it, but since I am a curious kitty cat, I turned to see what all the ruckus was about. The man standing behind me had at this point gone around me the other way and said "Great shirt!" I was confused and befuddled and anything else that means I had no idea what was going on. He smiled at me and said, "I needed a laugh, that is a great shirt!" I thanked him and said it was my pleasure to make him laugh.
I feel really good about myself now. I gave a laugh and a smile to someone who needed it.
So, to you, older-than-I-am gentleman who patroned the McDonalds in Dublin today,
You're welcome. I don't know why you needed a laugh, but I'm glad I could help you out.
