Re: Part C:(Make up something
): I was discussing this last night at dinner with a few friends. We came to the conclusion
that the best solution when you know your joke or story is going nowhere
, and it's going to die fast, is to just say "and then I found five bucks!" Simple as that
So we were walking down the street the other day, and this guy looked at us and said, "can I shine your shoes?" We politely responded "no" and continued walking, then I started thinking about what to make for dinner. But then I found five bucks!
It just kinda makes the story worthwhile, because hey, you found a fiver!
