Ever have one of those days when you just can’t seem to interact with people, and it’s a struggle to even make the effort? Someone will speak to me (usually a coworker or my ex) and I’ll answer only because a response is expected, like the dialogue is scripted but I can barely remember my next line. So I stammer out some near-gibberish, and afterwards I think, “What the hell did I just say?” πŸ˜€

The other day I was buying my sister an mp3 player at Best Buy, and the sales boy asked if I wanted the 2-year replacement warranty. Not wanting to hear his canned speech, I said it was going to Germany, hoping that would be the end of it. So he started his spiel about how it could be replaced anywhere by calling this number, blah blah blah, my eyes glazed over, and for a split second he didn’t even seem to be there; as if he’d sprouted purple antennae and started speaking Swahili, and in disgust my brain just refused to acknowledge he existed. It was bizarre but also kind of funny, and I did get the extended warranty after all, because my sister has a 2-year old in the house. πŸ™‚
