If I only had a brain! Call me Scarecrow.
So, I don't always show evidence of having a brain, especially when I talk. My boss at work is in another state so we communicate through email and IM'ing and phone. I emailed him today asking for some information, some kind of cheat sheet - something that would clarify some things for me that I always mess up. Mess up! Me? I know, right? He told me where to find a spreadsheet and I was most happy.

The next email back to him was something to the effect of "thanks! Kinda ugly but I can put it in a format I like better. This will help!"
To which he replied, "Ugly? I did that. Thanks for the compliment!"
Luckily he has a good sense of humor so I sent my version to him when I finished with it and he had me add it as another page on his spreadsheet. Mine was definitely prettier. I just really need to think before those words tumble out of my
mouth sometimes. Because you wouldn't believe what comes out when I am completely not paying attention at all!
