Walking through town this morning, I met an acquaintance. “Oh, Hi! How are you?”
Surprised I’d acknowledged him he very enthusiastically greeted me back and then said,
“Hey! Are you excited about Christmas?”
I said I was and again he expressed surprise.
“I’m not!” He said. “I hate it. Christmas is for children and I don’t like them either.”
My turn to show surprise.
The next thing he said was, “Do you know when Crime Watch is next on?”
You’re asking the wrong person that question, I thought to myself, and said, “No. I haven’t got a clue.”
“Oh!” He replied. “Because I just wanted to find out what my kids are up to over Christmas.”
Well, I thought it was funny but I have no idea if it was original!
