Recently I finished watching all three seasons of The Game of Thrones…within a week. You could say I was and still am addicted. Having watched so many episodes in such a short amount of time, I have been accidentally saying things to people as they would say them on the show. Considering the show is based during a time over 12,000 years ago, I sound like an idiot.
The majority of the time it happens at work.
During a meeting…
“Pardon me, I must go make water…one too many cups of coffee today.”
Questioning my boss when he tells me to do something…
Boss: “Do it because I am your boss.”
Me: “My Lord, any man who must say, I am the king, is no true king.”
Needless to say, I don’t have a job anymore.
At the doctor’s office…
Dr.: “How are things going? Are you feeling ok?”
Me: “I always take figs mid-afternoon. Helps move the bowels.”
Dr.: “I see. Well, I would still like to run some tests.”
Me: “Tests are like nipples on a breastplate…useless, good sir.”
Me: “My lord, just so you know I am not wearing any small-clothes.”
Me: “Sorry my lord, underwear.”
Me: “Servant girl! Fetch me more mutton stew.”
Server: “Stop calling me servant girl and I assume you mean you want another bowl of chili. Where the hell are you from anyways?”
Judge: “Jury, will you read the verdict?”
Me: “My lady, people often claim to hunger for the truth, but seldom like the taste when it’s served up.”
Judge: “Wonderful, another Game of Thrones freak.”
Last but not least, as the summer heats up and makes me extremely miserable I repeat to myself over and over, “Winter is coming.”
