Emmy Speech.

I totally impressed Lois with my athletic ability this afternoon.  She was trying to pick up her slice of pizza with her fork, and somehow managed to instead use her fork as a launching device.

I heard her say, “Oh no!” and before my brain could even comprehend what was happening, both of my hands shot up in the air to catch the flying pizza.  The look on Lois’s face was priceless.  We looked at each other, looked at the rescued pizza, and then cracked up laughing.

Lois:  “That was really amazing!”

Me:  “I know!  We couldn’t have planned that out better if we tried!”

Lois looked at me with great admiration:  “I mean, WOW!  You were so fast!”

I felt like I was making an acceptance speech for an Emmy at that point:  “Well, I’ve been told that I have pretty good hand/eye coordination.  Plus, pizza is my favorite food so, I’m not sure if my act of heroism had to do more with reflexes or my love of pepperoni…”

Lois:  “Well, I think that you should at least try out for a sports team because that was the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen!”

Me:  “Well thank you, Lois, I’ll keep that in mind…”

With that, we both went back to happily eating our lunch.
