Conversations from Work

I haven't posted much at all, and it's been a long time since I offered any "conversations from work" material. My coworker here is pretty shrewd in his ability to take the wind out of my sails, plus he has suspicions about who or what exactly I am. Even I wonder about me sometimes...

Me: People get so easily distracted. Individual freedoms are at stake. People are stupid. It makes me angry that I have to be one.

Coworker: Are you certain you are?
Me: I reproduced effectively with another human being. Biologically speaking, that defines me as a member of the species... Although basing my definition of my own humanity on my reproductive viability seems like something an alien would do, right?
