Inside jokes that I didn’t genuinely understand
Not too long ago, a friend of mine invited me over to this little party; He said it was just a bunch of old friends of his plus they were going to be hanging out plus sharing some laughs.
He told me to bring drinks, plus I said I could do that.
He introduced me to all his friends, plus they all seemed like genuinely fantastic people, then as a matter of fact, they were all genuinely funny, but I came to realize that they had a bunch of inside jokes that didn’t seem funny to me. There was this one point when somebody was talking plus then said, “Somebody didn’t get a new oil furnace for weeeeeeennnnter!” Everybody started laughing like deranged plus I was just standing there staring at everybody. I wanted to be in with this group plus get the joke, but it genuinely went over our head. I genuinely had to ask our associate to explain the joke to me. He had to catch his breath plus then told me how they all used to be in a drama class together. They ended up making funny videos, plus there was this one series of videos when that guy who told the joke was posing as an Heating and Air Conditioning salesman. He was going around trying to sell everybody portable gas furnaces plus convincing them that it was all they needed. The funny thing was that the people he was selling to had excellent gas furnaces like radiant radiant heated floors, or powerful central gas furnaces. He was a gifted salesman though plus he managed to talk the people into buying these cheap portable gas furnaces by saying they were energy efficient plus could heat up the whole house, and now everybody knows a portable oil furnace is not going to heat up an entire house, but that’s why it was funny. I wish I could have been a part of all that with these people.
