John Lennon Is Rolling Over In His Grave Right Now

This is a very short post.  I wrote a very long post earlier today.  You can read it below.

At work today I was eating a tangerine at my desk.  And it was seriously full of seeds.  I accidentally swallowed one and was like "Ugh, someone should really make seedless tangerines."

And then out of nowhere (I didn't even know it was coming), at my desk, in the middle of the office, I sang:

"All I want is a seedless tangerine."

to the tune of Yellow Submarine.

And I heard someone laugh.  And I don't know who it was because I haven't worked at my job long enough to recognize people by their laugh. 

Someone else found out I'm completely batty today.

What else is new.

  1. I love how your posts always make me laugh outloud at work. I'm glad I have an office now or my old cube mate would be looking over the wall all "What's so funny?". I also very much enjoyed your post from earlier today. I am sad for the lack of anniversary presents out there, but the rainbow candy cane made me laugh.

    Thank you for being so hilarious!

    xoxo

    No Thank YOU for reading.

    I wish I had an office. Then no one would have heard me singing. I'm like a wild and unpredictable animal in a zoo, I need a cage.

    They are only beginning to realize what we have known for years...

    We love you for being you :-)

    1. Yes well, as much as you love me, sometimes it's hard to actually BE me. Some days I would love to be a person that these things don't happen to.

      But Thanks :)

    Also, when I was in the bathroom today I was having a conversation in my head. And then I realized someone was in the stall next to me. And it made me scared for half a second that maybe I was having some inner monologue with myself OUT LOUD. I still don't know for sure, but it would be real awkward because my conversation in my head was about how I do not like a particular person very much. Anyways, it made me think of you.

    1. That DOES sound like something I would do. And now I want to know what person.

  5. But you're batty in a good way. I would love to be your coworker. And I'm sure John doesn't mind either.

  6. Completely batty people are the BEST kind of people. I say this with confidence, because I am a completely batty people. Plus, you're a lot of fun.

    And now I have 'seedless tangerine' stuck in my head to the tune of Yellow Submarine. Thanks for that....

    1. I have it stuck in my head too. Except I just keep singing "We all live in a seedless tangerine."

    2. So it might just be because I'm exhausted and writing report cards for twenty-eight little people, but you could also take Abba's "Dancing Queen" and turn "feel the beat of the tambourine" into "feel the seeds of the tangerine". I don't think ABBA would mind nearly as much as Mr. Lennon if you altered the lyrics. It was oh-so-easy to do. ABBA comes on Spotify and I'm inspired. Thought you should know.

    3. I was browsing your blog today Emily, so I totally already knew that you were a teacher (and that you have lots of pet friends.)

      And now I have to go youtube Dancing Queen. At least it'll get the other seedless tangerine song out of my head. Thank the Lord.

  7. I'm pretty sure this is my favourite thing that I've read on the internet. I'm glad I'm not the only one who gets laughed at. For singing. To herself.

  8. OK, I've been reading and laughing all night because I just found your blog. But this one made me actually have to comment. I read "All I want is a seedless tangerine" to the tune of Yellow Submarine before I even got to the next line and now I'm laughing so hard I can't see through the laughtears! Thanks for the laughs from a fellow south suburbanite!
