Reminded Of A Funny Story

Posted by terrepruitt on July 10, 2019

It is not just for state employees but all employees . . . anyway . . . it reminded me of something that makes me laugh every time I think about it. I have this jacket, it is a light jacket not really meant for cold. It is a camel color. But it is one of those materials that people just are compelled to touch. Whenever I wear it people ask me if they can touch it. Not necessarily strangers on the street, but friends or people I am talking to. I usually say yes because it really is a fabulous material and I hold out my arm.

Well, several times while talking with friends I have said after a few minutes, “Um . . . do you realize you have been stroking my arm the entire time we have been talking?” And they are shocked. It is so funny. This jacket is odd. It is almost like a really soft pet, once you touch it you just want to keep petting it. It is so funny. I have had that happen several times and sometimes during very long conversations.  Every time it happens it makes me laugh.

As I said, these are friends and not strangers or people I have just met, so it makes me laugh. And while I was in the training tonight it made me think of it. Sometimes when you have the same training over and over your mind tends to wander. Have you ever had that happen? You have sat through the same thing so your mind drifts back to a funny situation?
