So, I work at the Pentagon.  Here’s an example of what the average civilian worker at the Pentagon looks like.

However, I also happen to be currently working on the night shift.  Now while most people still look like the above, I ran into someone who looked like this a couple days ago:

Here’s how the conversation on the elevator went:

I notice he’s wearing a black t-shirt saying “Procrastinators of the world unite… tomorrow”

Bill: Hey dude, cool t-shirt.

Him:  Heh yeah, I think it’s awesome.

Bill:  Have you seen the one “Dyslexics of the World Untie!”

Him:  Yeah, I wear that one on Thursdays.

Silence for about 5 or 6 seconds.  We get out of elevator and start walking down the hall.  I assume conversations over and begin to walk away because I innately walk fast.  He scurries and catches up with me.

Him: So… do you believe in the paranormal?

I stop, turn around and look at him.  No joke, this is what I said.

Bill:  Well, I used to watch the X-Files.

Him:  No I’m talking about real stuff.  You know, ghosts, poltergeist, demons.  That kind of thing.

Bill:  Um, well…

Him:  You should totally check out

Bill:  Um, what?

Him:  Yeah, it’s this awesome website that my friends and I are starting.  We investigate all sorts of paranormal phenomenon all over the country.  The AE network has shown some interest in it and stuff.

Bill:  Right… well, um, I’ll have to check that out.

I stupidly add – damn me for being nice and personable –

Bill:  Well, I see you around a bit, so next time I see you I’ll let you know what I think.  Seeya!

I scurry away at top speed.
