Name Dropping

“Did you know Jimmy was related to Chuck Norris?”

“Yeah, I did. How could you not? He only talks about it all the time”

“I don’t know. It must have slipped by me. He told me today at lunch.”

“Oh, Really?”

“Mmm hmmm, but it was kinda odd. We were talking about the game last night and suddenly he just up and says, ‘I’m related to Chuck Norris. He’s my mother’s third cousin.'”

“One day he told me three times, like I missed it everyday for the past five years that I’ve known him.”

“You’re kidding”

“I kid you not. He mentioned it at the coffee maker in the breakroom first thing. No context or anything leading up to it. ‘Just, ‘I’m related to Chuck Norris.’ Then we were in a meeting and Bob was talking about the losses this quarter and Jimmy sees this as some strange opportunity to tell everyone in the room that Chuck Norris is his cousin and that they talk every week.”

“Wow, that’s weird.”

“Oh, it gets better. Later in the day, I tripped and fell down the steps. He was waiting there at the bottom like he was expecting me or something. He reached out his hand to help me up, then as he’s pulling me up, he leans in real close and whispers in my ear, ‘Did you know I’m related to Chuck Norris?”

“Creepy.”

“Yup. Don’t leave me alone in a room with him. If you see me alone with him, make up some emergency or something.”

“Roger that.”
