I was on my break today, minding my own business, when a fellow employee came up and asked me why I was sitting at that particular table. Depending on what time you go to break, some tables are in the shade while others sit in the sun. I was sitting at a table in the shade. “It feels better over here,” I answered.
“No, it doesn’t. It’s too cold in the shade,” was what I heard next. To which I innocently replied, “It’s not too cold until someone’s nipples are hard.”
Other people started laughing, but my mind started wandering. Why do nipples get hard when it’s cold? I’m sure there’s some explanation for it, but, after thinking about it some, I’m not sure I want to know. Some things are better left as mysteries.
