Scene: Office, 4:30 PM. People are bustling about, coming from and going to meetings. I am making nice with strangers, because it’s part of my job.
Man A: [stepping across the tiled floor] Listen to that!
Man B: I see you noticed their dance floor! [laughs and walks away]
Me: I didn’t know you could dance!
Man A: I need to talk to someone about getting a disco ball installed. Maybe some laser lights too…
Me: I’ll put in a request with the big boss, how about that?
Man A: Great! We’ll also need to talk about getting you some go-go boots!
Me: [holding back vomit] Ha ha, we’ll see! We’ll talk about that next time!
I do believe a raise is in order (or at least several glasses of wine).
What an appropriate close to that kind of day.
