I Shouldn't Speak To People Who Don't Already Know Me
While discussing the vitally important series E! True Hollywood Story
at work, the following conversation took place:
Co-worker: MacKenzie Phillips was out all night at parties when she
was 15 years old.
Me: God, when I was 15 I think I was playing with legos. Or I was in
braces and reading the Diary of Anne Frank.
Co-worker: You must have really felt for her.
Me: Well, my braces certainly made me feel trapped and isolated.
Me: (softly) Sorry I just compared my orthodontic history with the Holocaust.
Co-worker: Yeah, I thought that was a bit weird.
Me: I am going to go to lunch.
