Is it That Obvious?

(dinner function with attorneys)

Fancy Dress Lady: “Nice to meet you. Are you also an attorney?”

Me: “Oh, God no.”

FDL: “Then what are you? A Viking?”

Me: “Only semi-professionally.”

FDL: (shocked look) “Oh my God! Are you serious right now? I was just kidding. What, do you have a viking blog or something?”

Me: “Well, actually…”

FDL: “Oh, no way! You’re killing me. What’s your blog?”

Me: “Very Vocal Viking. It’s not really about Vikings. It’s mostly just stories about funny things my kids say.”

FDL: “I will seriously check that out.”
