In which I am deeply amused and slightly mortified.

I clicked over to the mainpage and saw this video. I'm at the end of my shift (technically off my shift) and decided to watch it because, well, Ben Wyatt is basically me as a fictional white male.


I haven't laughed this hard in ages. I was shaking with silent laughter by the middle of the clip. For a split second, I thought my laughter subsided so I let my guard down, when I was suddenly overcome again (basically when Ben starts to feel faint from the excitement). I burst into laughter - loud, genuine laughter - and tried to reign that in as it left my mouth. This resulted in my making a loud honking noise and spitting all over my desk and computer monitor...

...right as one of the founders of my company (a woman I greatly, greatly respect but don't know very well) walked past. At first, she thought I'd just sneezed, so she said "bless you." I nodded, still unable to control my laughter. Then she said, "Watching something funny, I hope?"


I nodded and managed to choke out, "Yes, very." To which she replies, chuckling, "Oh good, I thought you were having an attack of some sort."

First: That video is delightful and, yes, hilarious.

Second: I cannot believe that just happened, and I'm kind of embarrassed, but mostly I'm relieved she had a good sense of humor about it.
