A Great Moment in my Life

In 1979 The Muppet Movie came out. In that movie, there is a running gag. I've waited 27 years for the chance to use it. That chance came today.

I was with a colleague on our way to a meeting with a VIP. We were late and my friend was having a hard time finding the fellow's office. We tried one floor and then another and finally, my chance came.

George: I think I'm lost.

Me: Have you tried Hare Krishna?
YESSSSSS! JACKPOT! It was glorious! Best of all, my friend is a retired Navy captain, used to command a nuclear submarine and is a very serious man. It took him a few moments to figure out just what this nut he was with was saying. Finally he said with a smile, "I don't think that would help."

I can now claim I've lived a fulfilled and happy life.

Oh my gosh!!! I can't imagine how great that was. I'm dying laughing just thinking about it!
Thanks for the laugh:)

A good chuckle out of this.

I don't remember that scene, but I have
the vision of the scene in 'Airplane'
when they are going through the concourse...
