I consider myself a very patient person, but every once in a while there are people that just really get on my last nerve. And I can’t allow that, because I always like to make sure that I have at least one last nerve reserved for my wife. But sometimes it can be difficult to escape the torture of their relentless presence. Of course there have been times that I have just told someone to shut their pie hole and walk away, but sometimes you can’t do that. Sometimes the situation is a little more delicate. Like, the person is family, or maybe they are holding you captive by promising to help you with something important that no one else can help with. Whatever the case, you are stuck there. So I have often wished that there was a way to get some sort of portable, life sized cut out of myself that I could secretly deploy, giving me ample time to quietly sneak out of the conversation. But alas, I don’t think that is going to happen, so I guess that for now I will be stuck in inane conversations that are going nowhere and are doing nothing but aggravating me.
However, I may be stuck, but I am not completely unarmed. While they are prattling on incessantly, I can be singing “I’m a little teapot” in my head while picturing them doing the dance. Oh…if only they knew how silly they looked. They would be humiliated. Mwuahahahaha!
