Have you ever retired a human by mistake?-Blade Runner

Overheard conversation

He: You know Wesley Snipes?

She: What's he in?

He: He played Blade in that one movie. What's it called? Blade Runner?

Bystander: It was called Blade.

He: Oh yeah and he was in Coming to America.

Not knowing about movies is acceptable. Giving wrong information with total confidence isn't.

'Tis healthy to be sick sometimes.-Henry David Thoreau

Dave stayed home from work sick and apparently Fiona convinced him not to take her to day camp. I texted at lunch to see how he was.

Me: How are you feeling? Better? Worse?

Dave: Better. Fiona made me a PB&J and brought me apple juice and some fruit snacks.

Me: Awwwww. She's turning out to pretty decent.

You can't depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.-Mark Twain

Poor Miss Daphne has a goopy eye. I was worried that it was Pinkeye. Luckily I was wrong, it turns out she has an, "immature tear duct"....

She's not quite 5 months old I wouldn't describe any part of her as "mature".

You're not drunk if you can lie on the floor without holding on.-Dean Martin

Telling an embarrassing but funny story about drinking too much.

Me: So I was lying on the bathroom floor and Dave knocks on the door and says sweetly, "I got you a bucket."

Co-worker: Your lucky, my husband would have left me on the bathroom floor.

Me: That was before we got married. He was trying to woo me.
