Gross. But to me - hilarious.

Have you ever had a conversation and then gone back over it in your head and realized that it was completely shocking? That if someone had overheard you s/he would have immediately concluded that you're a total weirdo/freak/psychopath/dimwit? Well, I had one of those today with K. We were emailing about our usual, random subject matter and then, all of a sudden, the normal chatter was peppered with bits of disgusting verbage that didn't even register on our radar as suprememly strange until afterward. It pretty much went like this:

I feel like I might shit my pants.

Perhaps the restroom would be a good place for you to visit sometime in the next few minutes?

I need to wait until the pressure of the chair is no longer needed as a shit dam.

Hmm. Well, now that's something you don't hear everyday.

That's gross, right? I mean, there is no question that the above conversation is nasty and inappropriate in 99.99% of all situations, right? Well, at the time, it was just what came up. A "shit dam"? Who the hell says that? I guess I do. Funny part is that to K & me it was just another conversation until we really thought about what had just been said. We're so bizarre. OK, well, I'm so bizarre. I don't want to wholly condemn her based on one isolated exchange (but believe me, the full picture would lend the same conclusion - love you, K!).

I wonder what other people talk about when they think no one else is listening that's completely relevant only to the other half of the conversation.

Oh c'mon, it's not like you're stealing pencils or screwing your boss. Lord knows that would never happen. He's a hobbitt.
