Standing at the bus stop on my way to work, some bloke with a thick French accent decided to speak to me.
After exchanging a few words about the whereabouts of our bus, he asked,
“Why is your English so good?”
I’ve been down with a stuffy nose and sore throat. I was in no mood to explain my childhood.
“Because I went to school.”
I said it without thinking and, immediately, decided that I was pretty funny.
I stood there grinning widely at him.
If that isn’t the most inane thing I’ve ever said, I must be delusional.
