In the kitchen at work tidying up after myself with one of the Architects chatting away in the kitchen - suddenly he says "Is your beard ginger?"
My thoughts ranged from OMG did he just ask that ? to HOW RUDE!
Stunned by his comment I slowly turned to give him a telling off only to find another architect had walked into the kitchen and it was HIM the question had been directed at.
Now anyone else would have thought Phew! and quietly got on with things - Not me nooooo I had to open my mouth and say "Oh my God! I thought you were talking to me then"
Why oh why don't I learn?
