Blame It On The Titanic

It was one of those days, where it seems the list of things to get done was infinite. Some co-workers and I were belly aching about it. One of the ladies said that she had everything under control and that we could all go home early (jokingly of course).  One of the guys says "hey we could go see one of those new movies". I'm thinking, it's only Noon. So I said if I get out of work this early, I'm gonna go home and chase Mama around the house.  They chuckled, and after a few seconds of silence, one of the guys says "what I hate about going home early is when I open the front door to enter, I hear the back door slam".

Guess you had to be there...

The next day we were cuttin' up again. On the TV they were taking about the tropical storm that formed in the Gulf of Mexico.  It's a strange phenomenon to say the least to have a named storm form this far north, there was another tropical storm recently that formed off the coast of Georgia. So the discussion went of about global warming and such, when it occurred to me what has caused this fundamental change in weather patterns. If the Titanic had not hit that ice burg, the Arctic shelf would not be breaking up.  We wouldn't be having this strange weather.

So today, we're talking about the hot weather in the Eastern US.  I said that when I was a kid I loved it that hot, and we never wore sunscreen. In fact we work the coconut Hawaiian Tropic suntan lotion to get the good tan.  So the argument was that skin cancer was more prevalent now, and I agree with that. But in a serious note I think some people are pre-disposed to that.  I don't personally seem to be affected by all that sun exposure in my younger years. Even now I don't wear sun screen ever.  But for those less fortunate, I had the answer, I blamed it on the Titanic...  (jokingly).
