You’ll (maybe) laugh when I tell you this. Not really because it’s funny but because it shows how cracked I can be.
There’s this woman at work and her relative (let’s say it’s her uncle) just died, so she tells me about this and I file it away in my mind. Next time I see her I’m struggling for something to say to her and then I grabbed at this memory of her uncle dying and I (almost) said “so, how’s your uncle – still dead?”
I managed to stop myself that time, but this is just to warn you that if I say something inappropriate it’s not because I don’t mean well (I do) but because I’m not quite wired up properly.
