Stupid Is As Stupid Does

I walk around my day-to-day life and I think to myself, “You know, Courtney? You’re smarter than a lot of these people. Not all, not even most, but a lot of ’em. You’re one smart cookie.”

Then I open my mouth. And I laugh. Because if I think that I’m smart, then what the hell are the dumb people?

I was at work today and my coworker calls me over by asking, “Courtney, do you have a sec?”

And how do I answer? With the oh-so-witty response, “Sure, I have lots of secs.” Long pause. “Uhm. I have lots of secONDS. SecONDS. Not sex. Did I just say I have lots of sex out loud?”

Good god.
