"What's Something Someone Said To You Today?"

It never fails. I'm at an improv show and the emcee asks the audience, "What's something someone said to you today?" and I've got NOTHIN'. Squat all.

Too bad I don't have a show to go to tonight, because I don't know when I'll ever have someone say anything like this to me again:

"I told her that if the test came back positive, I'd have to exhume her brother and his monkey."

Well, that beats what I wrote on the little slip, yesterday.

I was disappointed that your husband didn't even chuckle when he read it off btw.

Which one was yours?

And keep in mind that breaking during a scene is generally considered bad form... ;)

I cannot believe that you didn't save this for rehearsal.

This bears recording.

Jo's status message is "I told her that if the test came back positive, I'd have to exhume her brother and his monkey."

Matt: oh man, why can't I place that quote...
Jo: Because I heard it at work!
Jo: One of my docs said it
Jo: he was talking about a case of poisoning
Matt: oh, wait, I know where I heard it
Matt: your blog
Matt: i was trying to think of what tv show or snl skit it was from last week
Jo: HA!!
