Conversations: Naked




After taking my shoes, hat, watch, and purse off of by body then taking my computer and cord out to put in a plastic grey container to be scanned in the airport, a random old man in front of me says:

"I hate this part about airports".
I say: "Yeah I bet by this time next year they'll have us going through the detectors naked".
Old man:  Silence.  A burst of laughter, "well I hope they have us go into separate rooms for that".
Me: "oh. . . yeah for sure".

Sometimes I don't think before I speak.  

Using the word "naked" in the first sentence you speak to a random old man is . . . probably not the best.

That's funny!

We have dark furniture in our bedroom that catches dust really quickly so I imagine the Ikea tables will be the same way. I guess I'll just need to keep a dusting cloth handy :)
