WTF moment of the day

I'm sitting in my coffee shop. Two women are sitting behind me, having a business meeting. I'm not really paying attention, but then I hear:

"I'm not interested in selling body hair to people. I just don't have the time or the passion to do that."

And before you ask, no, I did not hear her wrong.

Half of finding your purpose in life is knowing for sure what you don't want to do. Most of us know instinctually that we don't want to sell body hair but hey - who are we to argue with her self-discovery process???

Don't you feel better about your career now? I know I do :)

Hell if people are too lazy to grow their own body hair I certainly can't be bothered to grow it for them.

Um, what?? When I was about to start chemo I was excited about getting rid of the body hair. Why would someone want to buy it??

That's got to be some of the funniest stuff I've ever heard.

The update: They followed that up by talking about "healing circles" held on every third Friday of the month.

Selling body hair and healing circles? What an interesting conversation...

Mmmm, nothing like thinking about BODY HAIR over your morning latte.

I got stuck at a table next to a couple of women like this in a pizza place once... it was all "helping you embrace your inner woman" and "empowerment phone calls" and "being one with the breadsticks and all. I moved to the far side of the table because I thought it might be catching!

it makes me wonder what the sold body hair is used for...and it makes me shiver and gag a little.

You didn't happen to hear where we could send our unwanted used body hair for cash, did you?? Sort of like Locks for Love.

I'm not really sure I want to know about that selling body hair business, but if you find out anything, pass it along cuz I'm Italian and got a lota body hair!

Swishy - People like that are actually hired by the federal government to say bizarre things, spawning someone to either a.) write a blog entry about it, or b.) bring it up at dinner parties. It's their little way of keeping an eye on the gossip grapevine.

Hey you have to go back and find the scoop on this. The hell with all my unpublsihed manuscripts.

I could make a fortune peddling the fur that grows on my body. I'm begging you, find out the details. ;)
