So I had to get firm with a co-worker of mine. (1 Viewer)

We have this reporter in the newsroom who covers commercial real estate in Orange County and San Diego. Her name is Julie (nope, not that Julie).

We took our boss to lunch yesterday for her birthday.

As we all sat there, enjoying the weird ambiance of the downtown Los Angeles restaurant--Clifton's--Julie mentioned that she has taken up target practice by throwing daggers. A weird hobby, I know.

But Julie went a bit far when she mentioned using an oak tree in her back yard for practice. I lost my temper.

"I don't want to hear any more of your oak-and-dagger stories," I told her as I returned to my soup.

That was bad. If ever there was a case for deleting a post on this forum, this is it. In fact, I think posting extremely bad puns should be a reason to ban a member, even an admin. :laugh:

I wood have done the same thing, or at least taken a stab at it. I know your bark is worse than your bite. I hope she got the point.

I thought posting this would be relatively safe on a holiday weekend when there are fewer around. ... :)

So what happened after Jack? Did she leave in a huff, or a taxi?
Was it an old oak tree? Was there a yellow ribbon tied around it?

Puns are the Devil's work: Even though I groan whenever I hear one, I'm still jealous that I didn't think of it first. :)
