Me: “A resident at [townhome community] called in to say that some aggressive dogs got loose in the neighborhood and killed a cat and then turned on their owner.”

Boss: “Jesus. Was the owner injured?”

Me: “No. Everyone is okay.”

Boss: “Oh, good.”

Me: “Except for the cat. The cat is not okay.”

Boss: “…”

Me: “I’ll stop talking now.”

  1. YAY! I’m so glad you left a comment on my blog so I could find the new, improved, reincarnated you! I’ve missed your witty blog posts! Now I must get caught up. You’ve made my day, you know!

Otherwise I find myself rambling on trying to justify what I just said (which, incidentally was said because I found it humorous in my head. Sadly it is not quite as humorous once it passes my lips).
