Leeks!

I was feeling slow and stoopid at my desk so got up to walk around.

I ran into Mr. Kim at the water cooler.  He asked me if I like leeks.

I was puzzled but said yes.  I once dated a girl whose father grew award winning leeks.  I went on about these huge leeks he would grow and how they made fantastic soups.

He looked at me strange, but I pressed on about the awesomeness of leeks as a superior type of green onion.

Finally it dawned on him: No leeks, he said.  LEAGUES.  Do you like leagues?  Like soccer.

No, not really. 

I went back and hid in my office.
