Deep Thoughts by Michael Lasko

Yesterday, in a meeting of forty-something pharmacists (as in the number of pharmacists, not the age of the pharmacists), I was introduced (by my boss??) as the most sarcastic pharmacist. Was that the most sarcastic pharmacist in the room? In the building? In the world?

People call me sarcastic because: 1) they do not understand me and/or 2) they cannot believe anybody could be "that mean" (which is really the same thing as #1).

I have never thought of myself as a particularly sarcastic individual, though I occasionally describe myself as subtly sarcastic...so subtle that nobody notices...or is supposed to notice.

So anyway, last night there was nothing on television after la clase de Espanol, so I attempted to watch Becker. I have never seen an episode of Becker...probably because it makes me sad to see what happened to Ted Danson. The TBS tagline at the beginning was: "Becker, the world's most sarcastic doctor". I made it through about four minutes of this laugh track laden sitcom. I am funny and Becker is not. If Becker is sarcastic, clearly I am not.

From now on, I shall describe myself as ironic...or perhaps subtly ironic. Friends, coworkers, and other acquaintances, it is okay if you do not understand me. You probably do not understand most things ironic.

You would rather go home and watch Becker than Borat? Nice.

Michael is sleepy after Spanish Class. I thought Borat would be to highbrow for me that late at night...I mean, what if there's no laugh track? How will I know where to laugh?

I want to see Borat! I can't believe I was left out of this request. I can't believe Michael wanted to see a movie at all. He never wants to go to a theater!

Are you on a different comment thread? I did not want to see Borat...that is why ICE is complaining. I elected to come home to see you instead.

Hi Nicole. I was including you in the request, however Michael just shut it down completely. However, Michael did suggest that we go see it Weds. night when you were at Rainbow. I would kick him for that. Oh, and then I found out you were not going to Rainbow tonight and I was willing to go to Borat still at 8pm...if he didn't mention that, I would kick him again.

Jessica said...

Oh and were you forced to see Becker instead of being given the choice to see Borat last night? Well, you know what to do...

I would use the word dry... not ironic.

I would take the intro as a comment. Cheers, -MisAdventure
