At boot camp this morning. A siren sounds as we are about to do our first set of pushups.
Claire: That’s a tornado siren! We need to take cover!
Tony: The sky is perfectly clear. There’s no tornado. Now shut up and do your pushups.
Liz: It could be a bomb siren. Terrorists could be about to bomb us.
Me: If we’re about to be bombed to death, I don’t want to spend the last 15 seconds of my life doing pushups.
Tony: Well, I’m not going to spend the last 15 seconds of my life doing what you want to do with you. Push UP!
Ten seconds later, I finally get it.
Me: If I had only 15 seconds to live, the last thing I would want to do would be that with you!
Tony: You know you want it. Don’t lie.
Bonnie: Tony, you need your own employment lawyer advising you on sexual harassment.
Tony: I’ll counsel myself later.
Me: If I had only 15 seconds to live, I’d want to spend it eating dessert. Brownies, probably.
