Sometimes, I am my biggest fan. I have resigned to the fact that I can be pretty witty. In fact, I think it’s one of my greatest qualities (I am not trying to sound incredibly un-humble, I am just trying to set this up for people who don’t know me). ANYWAY.
Here is the the most hilarious example of my quick-wit from the recent weeks. Today, at 8:30 in the morning, I was sitting in my Adolescent Psyc class when my professor (the other wittiest person I know) starting going on about divorce and its effects on young adults. She posed a bunch of facts and stats to us before asking us a question:
Do you know what Canadian province has the highest divorce rate per capita?
[no idea. it’s 8 stinkin’ 30 in the morning. and we’re still in class. unlike the rest of university students.]
Quebec. Any correlative ideas why that might be?
And, yours truly (myself), without giving it a thought or raising my hand or even thinking about anything at all yelled out with a straight face:
BECAUSE THEY ARE SEPARATISTS!

It was a good day.
