The Feet is Opening the Pack

Today I asked our new intern Alissa if I could have a piece of gum, and she said sure, but the unopened pack was giving her a bit of trouble and she said, "The feat is opening the pack."

This instantly almost made my head explode, as I envisioned referring to one's own feet in the third person and as a singular entity.

"The feet is opening the pack!"

I almost died.

devil mood: Oh, heavens no. Never at work. On the way to work usually, but never at work. That would be unprofessional.

$: There ya go. You're feelin' it.

If my name was The Feet I would announce myself whenever I entered a room. The Feet is in the building! I think speaking of myself in the third person and exaggerating my presence is important.

zee: My man, you're showing your age. The college kids are all speaking about their feet as singular, much like people talk about pants as plural.

vesper: I knew you'd understand, Vesper de Vil.

josh: "The feet is in the building!" That might be my new catch-phrase when I make my grand entrance into parties and such. Brilliant.

Sounds like a "Seinfeld" episode.

Zeeman- Isn't "editing" spelled with four t's, not two?

Helen Mansfield said...

Getto, yes four "t"s but not in a row.

This is borderline Andy Rooney too.
"Have you ever noticed ..."

How did Little Feat spell their name? Feats Don't Fail Me Now.
There, I'll use that as my Friday music too, two bugs squished with one feat. Or how about George Kastanza and the Feats of Strength?
Feet Feats.
