    I amused myself today...

    ... I stopped off at Best Buy on my home from work today and picked up an item for my computer. I was wearing a polo shirt with my department's logo on it, my badge on my belt along with my 4006, cuffs, and a magazine. The girl at the check out had a mild moment of shock at the sight of my gear and said, "That scared me at first."

    I responded, "Why? Are you a hoplophope?"

    She got all wide-eyed and horrified and said, "NO!! I'm not one of those."

    I then aksed her if she knew what a hoplophobe is. She said that she didn't. So, I asked her how she knew if she was one or not. Her response was, "It just didn't sound like a good thing to be."

    I told her that she was correct on that account. I wonder if she'll even have sense enough to look it up.

    Playing mind games with people is so much fun. :)

    Hehe - wicked entertainment! .

    She probably misheard ''hoplophobe'' and attached a quite different connotation LOL!

    Here's hoping she does look it up - and also, finds she is not one!
