Dumbest thing, someone has said to you

So 5 weeks ago, I completely tore my achilles tendon. I had surgery 3 weeks ago. After the surgery I was in a cast and on crutches.

So I go up to the Caribou Coffe in our building, and one of the girls I know there askse me what happens. I tell her I tore my achilles, and the girl working with her asks, "What is that?" I explain to her what that is and she replys "Ohhh in horror movies don't people, like, die right away when the bad guy cuts them there".

Me: "Um....I think you are thinking about an artery"

Interestingly, I think that Coffee Hostess may be thinking about the movie Pet Sematary, which was a fairly accuarate rendition of the Stephen King book.

In the climactic scene, Fred Gwynne (of Herman Munster fame) gets his Achilles Tendon sliced up by the kid who has returned from the dead, then he kills him like five seconds later with that same knife.

That's probably what she was thinking about.

Do things I have incoherently mumbled to myself count as someone saying something to me? How about things that I suspect my dog would say to me if he could talk (often good cause for incoherent mumbling on my part) ?

I almost forgot about this one. The night I injured myself playing basketball, I went to the Urgent Care. I hobbled in and the receptionist, while craning her neck straight up (I am 6' 7") asked "Did you hurt yourself playing hockey?"

Never before in my life has anyone ever accused me of playing hockey. I always get the obligatory "So do you play basketball?"

True, but when I go to Timberwolves games and I am walking in the concourse, I am about a head taller than the crowd.

When I go to the Minnesota Wild games at the Xcel Center, it's like a convention of Hobbitts just let out.
