My husband got asked two of the dumbest questions I’ve ever heard this week at school. And not from the students either, but from teachers. They were, in order: “Have you done your Easter shopping?” and “Have you put up your Easter decorations yet?”
I never get questions like this. There’s a good reason for that. My scorn would probably cause the poor questioner to ignite.
But really? Shopping? Decorations? It’s still Lent! We still have to go through Good Friday! While shopping can’t really be avoided, decorating is a little bit of overkill, don’t you think?
Poor Mike was bewildered. He doesn’t really get into Christmas shopping mania, so transplanting that sort of small talk onto Easter will really get you a blank stare.
