What was the funniest, real, thing that ever happened to you in your life? In my case, when I was in college, I worked in the school library as a clerk. A young man called asking if we had a book on proposal writing. I was puzzled, but I told him I would look around. I scanned the shelves (this was in the days before computers) but couldn't find anything I thought he wanted. After keeping the poor man waiting on the phone for 10 minutes, I finally said to him, "I'm sorry. I can't find anything for you on that subject. But, you don't need a book to write a proposal. Just tell her how you feel and I am sure she will accept you". I thought he was talking about a MARRIAGE proposal!
