Lunchtime Conversations

Rarely do I head out to lunch with my co-workers. #1 Reason is that they always seem to be gone more than 90 minutes, sometimes closer to 2 hours. I would rather take 30 minutes, eat my lunch and get out of work at a decent time. #2 Reason is that I usually can't afford to go to the places that they go to for lunch.

Yesterday, I decided to splurge and head to lunch with them.
Somehow we got on the conversation of tattoos and then someone mentioned piercings. My boss looked at me and said, "Mike, you have your nipple pierced, right?" I said, "Yep, I sure do". Then the questions started pouring in, "Did it hurt?", "How long did it take to heal?", etc.
My boss then mention something about PAs and said that he could never get one and "could you imagine the pain?" Without thinking, I said, "Actually, I think the nipple piercing hurt worse than the PA."
Cue - silence and blank stares from my co-workers.
I wish I had a camera to capture the look on their faces because it was priceless.
I'm sure I was the topic of conversation after I left work yesterday.

So thats all that has been going on in my life lately. Dad and I decided to try to lose some weight before DELTA and INFERNO this year. Right now, we are just working on getting rid of all the junk/carb-loaded foods that we have around the house. Figured we would try South Beach this time, since Atkins put Dad in the hospital for 2 weeks the last time we did it. I've got to find my gym membership card and see if it is still active. Planned start date is July 5th.
