Comedy conversation on Tuesday in work. People were talking about nerdy hobbies and one colleague mentioned they used to collect stamps, knowing full well I still do.
"Heeeey," I said, before acquiescing that yes, it is a bit of a nerdy hobby.
Another collegue then said, "Oh, I didn't know you were a phila, philander, no that's not right."
"No, I'm not a philanderer." (People, including me, descend into giggles.) "But, thanks."
"I'm sorry, I meant... I got the wrong word." (Giggles)
"I can see it now. You're going to be talking to someone in the kitchen and go 'Oh, yes, you know Jon, he's a mad keen philanderer.'"
"Oh I could say all sorts. 'His wife likes it because it keeps him quiet. He goes to special events and everything.'"
