Knowing… Or Not
by Peter Conlin
My coworker and I only worked side-by-side for a few moments this afternoon. During the initial moments, I asked a question and following conversation occurred:
Me: So what would you like to talk about.
Co: I don’t know.
Me: I don’t know about I don’t know. You know?
Me: I mean, what is there to know about I don’t know…by definition, there isn’t anything to really know.
Me: Can I phone a friend?
Me: Can I poll Facebook? Tweet a twit? Link an “in”? Plus a Google?
Co: We can ask Linda!
(as Linda walks by in front of us): I don’t know nothing about anything.
(co-worker and I erupt in laughter)
Me: Well that was priceless…couldn’t have timed that any better if we wanted to.
Co: I know.
*so goes the story on Knowing About I Don’t Know.
