I can't help myself

My team and I were discussing the use of Legos in a science experiment (don't ask) today. As Rich was explaining his concept, he said, "....and with Legos, you put them together and then take them apart again...."

That was all I needed.

I slapped my forehead. "Oh, is THAT how they work!" I exclaimed. "I can't tell you HOW often I've been faced with a set of Legos and had absolutely NO IDEA what to do with the darn things."

About halfway through my dramatization, the other two women on my time were snickering and Rich was mock- (at least, I THINK it was mock) glaring at me.

"Are you quite finished?" he asked.

I gave him a regal wave. "Carry on."

The other ladies and I worked hard to compose ourselves and straighten our faces as he continued.

"So anyway, we'd take the Legos...."

And I lost the battle again.

"If I had a dollar for every time...." I began, sadly, under my breath.

Liz, Jill and I lost it again and even Rich started to smirk.

Seriously, I'm COMPELLED to be a smartass sometimes.
