Stupid question at a company picnic

We had so much KFC fried chicken left after the event that I told them to start taking it home. My beloved site supervisor picked up the tongs and the plastic bags and starting serving it out to each person that wanted some to take home. I told him to get me 2 pieces too. He said "which kind do you want? One breast or two?"

Now isn't that the frickin question? While I wait to see if they can do a lumpectomy after getting these lumps down?

Becky raised her fake-drawn-on eyebrow and stared him down. He didn't realize what he said until after. I love him (still)and...after the beating he will heal.

That's a man for ya! .....I hope he's getting over his beating.....lol......I'm sure he was blindsided, with your first punch, having no idea what he just said....I have to say, his was an honest misspeak..... It did make me laugh, though....Hindsight is great....you could have said " Two healthy one's please".......

Hugs, Nancy

Breast cancer is topmost on the minds of all who deal with this disease especially on a daily basis. For the rest of the world, it isn't even on their radar and we shouldn't expected it to be.

Laughing about it takes its power away! I have a friend at work that isn't really PC. I was joking about him so he said I was just jealous that his boobs are bigger than mine. (I had no boobs at the time) I told him he was just jealous because my hair came back! Even now, after recon, his boobs will still be bigger than mine.....

I would've asked him where those breasts came from .. ie---a hen or a cock ... Sorry ... couldn't help myself.

I am smiling cuz this is frikkin hilarious. I hope you didn't take it the wrong way. Your supervisor was either kidding with you or was just asking an innocent question.

OMG ... too funny

After he said it I saw him twitch a little and he tried not to look at me. It was very funny because of the innocence. But I sure wish I could have answered quick with your come back...the guys would have been rolling! Construction workers are great guys to be around.

When I was diagnosed and thought I was going to have chemo, I emailed my supervisor and said I'll have a bald head contest with another employee who shaves his head. After I found out I didn't have to have chemo, they said "darn, we won't have that bald head contest". I think if we use humor with others, they'll feel more comfortable around us. Of cours it may be awkward when I tell my male boss that I have to take the day off to get a nipple tattoo:)

That's so funny! Poor guy, I hope you were at least smiling when you gave him the beat down.

But, I think I got you beat. Today we took oldest grandson, left home at 5 am to walk the Mackinaw Bridge. Grand was in the 3 rd, I was in the 2nd row all stretched out with pillows and blankies, and Pops was driving. We stopped at a gas station to used the facilities...and I felt something funny. So, as grandson is climbing out of suv, I tell him not to turn around, just keep walking. Of course, he turns around, right as I pick up MY FAKE BOOB from the gas station icky ground and stuff it in my shirt. I was soooooo hoping he didn't see...but

3 hours later, he says "Mimi, what was that thing on the ground at the gas station?" Since he knows I had cancer, we discussed a mastectomey "Mimi, that sucks that they had to cut it off" Me "No, that's good, it was making me sick". He said "I really thought it was a cantelope!" Funny teaching moment, he's 9 and doesn't miss a thing!

And he and I only made it halfway across. I had to get the National Guard to flag down a bus and give us a ride back to the starting point for a 15 minute bathroom break for the lad. Note to self: Do not give this kid McDonalds for breakfast!

this is too funny ... wow

PS --- my nickname is MiMi ... hello to you

I am so glad you have this wonderful sense of humor. It is important not to take some of this stuff too seriously. I mean ... cancer is very serious but moments like this can just help make us lighten up a bit.

thank you for sharing
