Vacation Conversation

This always happens when I’m away.  Usually on a golf course when I’m hooked up with strangers.  And it never fails to crack me up.

“So what do you do for a living?”

“Ummm…TV.”

“TV?  Really?  What do you do?”

“News.”

“No kiddin’.  You a cameraman?”

“No.”

You’re on TV?”

“Yeah.”

“You a reporter?”

“Used to be in the field.”

“So what are you?”

“Anchor.”

“You’re an anchorman?  You?”

“I clean up pretty well.”

I know I didn’t come from the TV Anchorboy catalog, but one of these days, I’m going to shave and comb my hair and wear freshly-pressed clothes when I play golf on vacation.

Just to live up to that Ron Burgundy image.

Or not.

  1. Ok, once again you have me laughing so hard the dog jumped off my lap. You have got to stop doing that to me! Everytime he does that he decides to use one of my knees as a ‘jumping’ board.

    So not only to my sides hurt from laughing (not to mention the pulled muscles I have), but one out of two knees hurt! Somehow I will get you back!

  2. Hilarious. I’m envisioning Huntley and Brinkley as two of a foursome back in the 60s. Looking like Beckett’s tramps: Estragon and Vladmir.

    ” Should we tee off?
    ” Let’s go.”
    ( They do not tee off )

    Sorry. Once an English major, always…

  7. Dan McCarthy says:

    I’m still convinced Family Guy’s Tom Tucker is at least partially based on you.
