Yeah, so, my office buddy Paul decided for some random reason to start a rumor that “Peggy Sue Got Married” is my favorite movie.
Paul likes to mess with me. I saw that movie once in the theater. It’s a perfectly fine film, but it’s not my all-time favorite movie — not even close. I’m not sure why he picked that one.
So anyway, I needed to get him back. I walked through the office and casually said out loud, “Why do you think Paul likes that movie ‘Patch Adams’ so much?”
A few hours later, he started telling people that I like “Short Circuit 2,” which meant I had to up the ante.
“Remember when Paul took a week off to sit in line for the last ‘Twilight’ movie? That was so sad. It was a line of lonely housewives and Paul.”
A coworker took the bait.
“You like ‘Twilight,’ Paul?”
Paul: “No, Sonia is just telling people that because she likes ‘Look Who’s Talking’.”
Coworker: “How many of those ‘Look Who’s Talking’ movies did they make anyway?”
Me: “Why don’t you ask Paul? He’s got the box set.”
Office busybody: “Good one, Sonia.”
A few minutes later, Paul sends me an IM: “I will get you, Mansfield!”
