Do you ever suddenly become aware of the words coming out of your mouth, and get a quick flash of what a stranger listening in might think?
On the phone, in your office, co-workers all around, and your wife calls. Just for the sake of argument, we’ll call her Cassie. As an example.
And she has questions about the Naxx run that night, who is going, which character she should bring, who will be doing what.
And as you’re talking (and at the same time multitasking other work, answering email, writing work orders, generating Purchase Orders) you suddenly realize you are, in fact;
In the office.
Surrounded by (presumably) professional adults in the workforce.
On the phone.
And the words coming out of your mouth are;
“I’m sorry there doesn’t seem to be much loot for Ret coming out of Naxx. Maybe Ret in Naxx works the same as Bear did in Kara, where most good stuff came from Quests and Heroics, and there were very few true upgrades from the raid zone. If you want to stab stuff, that’s cool, but your pally was putting out 1500 deeps in Heroics, you’ll be fine for hitting Naxx first time. Grai will be on Fal so you’d be bringing the Replenishment for the mana gulpers which will help on Patchwerk.”
“If you can’t find a loot list for Ret that ranks like Shadowpanther does, maybe if you try a Wowhead filter search and sift by content top down you can get some ideas.”
“Just, go on who you want to go on, dear.”
“If you go stabby there are others that could use the same loot from the kill, but your pally would be one of the few that could use plate stuff for deeps and heals, the rest have most everything now. Remember the lesson of Fal and Kel’thuzad… sharded Tier sucks. It’s your call, either way is fine. I just know that having 5 people all vying for the same Tier gets old, maybe you should change it up.”
“No, really, I think your 1500 deeps on heroics is fine for hitting Naxx.”
“I talked to Fal quite a bit last night after we blew up ZG and ripping Hakkar’s heart out. Too bad we didn’t have the potion to light the brazier, madness is fun. Next time we’ll get crazy, next time.”
Did anyone else hear that?
Thank god we weren’t taking about first person shooters.
“They’re coming to take me away, haha, they’re coming to take me away, hoho, heehee, haha, to the funny farm, where life is happy ALL the time!”
Or, to quote my favorite villain from one of my favorite movies…
“Every day, in every way, I’m getting better, and better!”
I’d say another quote from that but the rest are too well known.
