From the Mouths of Government Employees

The topic today here in the office is lactose intolerance. Let me recount a conversation for you:

The Cheeseburger: "I tried that yogurt, but I quit eating it. It made my stomach feel weird."
Lady Looney: "Funny how?"
The Cheeseburger: "It made it feel full. It made me not feel hungry anymore. I think I'm lactose intolerant."
Lady Looney: "Does it make your stomach hurt?
The Cheeseburger: "No, just funny."
Lady Looney: "Does it give you diarrhea?"
The Cheeseburger: "Nope."
Lady Looney: "Does it make you fart?"
The Cheeseburger: "He he he he, no."
Lady Looney: "Then you're not lactose intolerant. You're just full!"

Okay, so maybe her advice wasn't so faulty today.

Why do I suddenly feel like the conversations in that room could easily fill up your blog??

I'm thinking about having a weekly feature...Overheard in Outages.

I'll have to start keeping track of the gems they come up with...

Funny when one doesn't know full from stomach upset. That made me laugh.
