Phyllis: "The rain pounded so hard last night that it reminded me of that time three years ago when we could barely get to work! Remember?"
Phyllis: "Were you pounded last night? Erica says she was pounded!"
I read those texts, and my brain immediately went you-know-where. I wasn't going to say anything, because my friend Phyllis is very literal. I wasn't sure she would understand what I found so funny, and it is difficult to explain humor via text.
But two of my other friends, included in the group text, were right with me.
C: "How many times is Phyllis going to say pounded?"
N: "Lol. I am SO glad you caught that, too!
C: "Haha. I just need to get my mind out of the gutter."
C: "But the gutter is so much more fun!"
I know that we were all giggling in our respective offices, scattered all over Texas. But my friend K, summed it up best, and perfectly illustrated that perhaps we were all channeling the souls of random teen boys. Not their mothers.
K: "Pounded...that's what she said!"
I guess that teenage boys have to get their sense of humor from somewhere.
