Hey folks. Didn’t feel like writing today (sorry). But one of my bosses just came over to my desk wearing his glasses. This man is particularly vain and I called him four-eyes. He laughed and said, “Well, my contacts have been bothering me lately, so I’ll be going with these until the nuclear meltdown, which should be about Wednesday or so.” Then before I can respond he says, “But I’ve got my pills ready – did you get yours?”
Then he reminds me that a bunch of paranoid bankers in my office have been stocking up on some pill that’s supposed to help your thyroid against anthrax or some chemical warfare stuff. He says, “Once they spread that stuff your thyroid is kaput. So don’t come crawling to my office when your skin starts peeling off.” With that he began laughing and walked back to his office.
First off, since when does “no thyroid = leprosy”?
Secondly, I realize that the anniversary of 9/11 is two days away, but if something happens, who am I to worry about it? Am I naive to think that whatever will be, will be, and I’ll address it when the time comes? Generally intelligent people in my office are stocking up on pills – I wonder if these same people built bombshelters behind their houses when New Year’s Eve 2000 came upon us as well.
