Joke Fail

When I’m uncomfortable I make awesome/horrendously inappropriate jokes directed at people who don’t know me and therefore have no inkling that I’m joking/crazy. Example: Today I had a doctor’s appointment to get some shots in advance of my Costa Rica trip in April. Doctor’s appointments make me uncomfortable – this is why I did not visit one for 18 years. Upon the doctor walking into the exam room this morning I commented: “Um, pretty sure the guy sitting next to me in the waiting room is dead. And judging by the amount of cash he HAD in his wallet, I’m pretty sure he’s not homeless so someone should maybe call his next of kin.”

Pause.

I just, JUST managed to grab the doctor’s arm and convince her I was joking as she ran out the door, likely to perform CPR.

And thus, joke FAIL.
