While waiting to order at Morty’s this evening, Dan, Kate, and I got into a discussion of metabolism, which led to Dan and I explaining what the thyroid is, and, then, naturally, also explaining hyper- and hypothyroidism. (Clearly I spend a lot of time with kids, and intimately know the kinds of things they converse about.)
When the server arrived at the table she waited to start talking til I finished my point, after which I looked up at her, smiled, and said, “We were just explaining endocrine disorders to an eight-year-old”.
Server: “Oh, are you doctors?”
Dan: “Nah, we’re just geeks.”
Server: “Oh, I’m a geek, too! I took science in undergrad.” (Note: she was, of course, a typical young, attractive, blonde, and lycra-clad Morty’s server.)
Melle: “Cool, what beers do you have on tap?”
