It's hilarious and very uncomfortable (on multiple levels) all at once.....like many Office episodes, I guess.
Of course, when trying to figure out who else in the office might be gay, Dwight turns to Jim about something called 'gaydar'. Jim checks and says that Sharper Image is all sold out. Dwight checks out Brookstone's site to see if they have any in stock.
As we all know, there is nothing really called Gaydar. Or is there?
I'd like to think I have good built-in gaydar. We all think we do - or most of us say we do, whether it be true or not. I believe I'm more right than I am wrong when it comes to identifying a 'mo. Of course, you get into variabilities when you get to 'wishful thinking'. Stats get skewed. That could be a fatal mistake, if nothing else, for your credibility.
As you might know two things about me from this blog: first, my oft-mentioned friends and I have kept a list of funny names (well, what we deem funny) for the last 15 years or so (Kirsten Payne? Richard Tickle? Pat Fenis? and yes, April Fresh), and second, that I read the obituaries on an almost daily basis.
Now and then, those two events merge. Not often, but now and again. Like yesterday.
Yes, the family name should have been trademarked. Gaydar®
Do you think she just knew - like the chicks from Medium or Ghost Whisperer? That she was just walking down Main St. or at the mall thinking to herself 'yes.......yes.......no.....no........no........no.......no......yes...." and dying on keeping the secret to herself? Or was she just a mouthy babe who'd tell everyone "oh I knew he was gay!"
Of course, maybe she didn't have the gift. She married into the name. She wasn't a blood relation. Oh man, can you imagine her kids in high school? Torture!
Naturally I sent this to 'the group'. Two of them responded almost the same way (and yes, this is for John): RORRRRRRIP.
A double laugh.
...and yes, Debora Lee Gaydar® has made the list of names.
