Co-worker, who approaches me as I stand at the copier with earbuds in my ears and my iPod in my hand: What song are you listening to?
Me, as I take out an earbud: Huh?
Co-worker: What song are you listening to?
Me: Oh! It’s not music. It’s CBS’ complete broadcast day from D-Day, June 6, 1944! The Germans were releasing information about the invasion but it wasn’t confirmed for a few hours. Right now, General Eisenhower is speaking to the people of occupied Europe.
Co-worker: Oh…well… hope that works out okay.
Me: It does!

Could have happened to me 🙂
LOL…that’s awesome. I’d so be your friend!
Hahaha I appreciate it! I usually get side-eyed because I’m so very weird and I know it. I’m an acquired taste! 😉
Those ones are usually the best ones. I am, myself, an acquired taste also 😉
Thats three friends then already 😉
Intelligence is an acquired taste for some, and when it is demonstrated, the uniqueness of the individual is not often appreciated. I mean unique as a compliment and as part of intelligence. I never spoke much of my book or what I studied in my History classes during college because I know the friends I had then would not find it as interesting as I do. Excellent post!!!
