Today I was walking out of the Psychology building and passed by a squirrel which freaked me out because I hate squirrels. All the squirrels at Sac state are insufferably arrogant little fatties. This squirrel however was not going to trouble me because it was dead.
"Well thats unfortunate." I muttered.
"What??" Said the random guy walking past me.
"Excuse me?" I asked confused. Wondering where he had come from.
"Oh, thought you were talking to me" random guy said, understandably a bit confused.
The minute that deranged sentence left my mouth I wanted to grab it out of the air and smack myself in the face with it because that was without a doubt the most socially awkward non sequitur I could have uttered at that point. Understandably the guy backed away slowly, before making a hasty escape for his life. For surely I was a raving lunatic.
No sorry there was a dead squirrel?
No sorry there was a dead squirrel??
No sorry there was a dead squirrel????
On the bright side I learned two new words and a phrase in Chinese today:
Cogitate:(verb) To think hard, ponder, meditate about a problem.
Eg: I shall cogitate about the grave misfiring of neurons in my brain that caused me to mention dead rodents to passing strangers.
Sobriquet: (noun) a fancy word for nickname.
Eg: Daniel's sobriquet is "Stormaggedon dark lord of all"
Bun tyen-shung duh ee-dway-ro: is a phrase in Chinese which translates roughly to "stupid stack of meat" and earns the distinction of being the only phrase in Chinese that I know.
