I am not. When I'm put on the spot with a question that may seem a bit awkward (to me) I tend to stumble over my response (Oh, um, well, gee
) and then later think "Oh! This would have been a perfect response!"
The other day at work I was walking out of Director's office (for a meeting that she was late to) and ran into her and a Gentleman (GM) that I never met before.
Director introduced me to GM and told him "If you ever need anything to be improved look-wise talk to jpcher. She can make anything look good."
GM looked at me (while pointing to his face) "Can you make this look good?" (laughing)
Yeah, I was put on the spot. But this time somehow something came out of my mouth that was really good, rather than embarrassing!
I replied "As good as I am I cannot improve perfection."
He LOL'ed and even blushed a bit . . . I turned to Director and talked about the meeting I just left. Then we went our separate ways.
I was proud of myself for coming up with that response, it was completely outside of my normal "Um, stutter, what do I say?"
What about you? Are you quick on your feet with responses to odd questions?
I'd like to hear your stories, either Win or Fail about being quick on your feet . . . I mostly fail, but this was a win in my book.
