I love the girls in my office!

So, I'm hanging in there leading up to my surgery next week, a bit tired and emotional at times - it's a rollercoaster unfortunately.  The girls in my office are wonderfully supportive and caring, even without trying.

This morning, it's just us girls - the boss (who's also really wonderful) is off in a meeting, and we have our mailing person Ben working for us.

I got a call from one of my providers - now, little background here.  The provider is a doctor who lectures in things like behaviour and emotional resilience.  He's . . . well, he's got a radio show, and he promotes himself in a little bit of a rockstar fashion.  Someone from another state wanted to use him recently, and he quoted them for business class air travel - bit steep when we're all not for profits!

Any, Doctor R, as I'll call him - well, we all assumed he was a big bloke like Dr Phil.  Only when I met him, he's this little blonde man with a pretty fair case of short man syndrome going on!!  

Well, our clients love him - it's like a little cult, they all want him to come and speak.  But our project officers aren't quite so jazzed - one or two in particular almost actively dislike him!

So, we were having a discussion about one of his invoices which for some reason hasn't been paid, and one of my co-workers started laughing and complaining that we had to stop talking about him.  I was baiting her and said I couldn't see what her problem was - that I thought he was little and cute.

That caused a serious uproar!!  Someone else said, "Oh, Neph, stick with the wrestlers!" and I just cracked up!  That is sooooo not what I ever expected to hear that from her.

Then it was "You can do what you like with them" which I did have to say was a very dangerous thing to say to me! That caused pandemonium, while I gave them my best Evil Overlord grin.

One of the girls was pleading with us to stop, because she's a very visual person and she didn't like the mental images - again, not the thing to say to me.  Add evil laughter to the evil grin.  Oh, and some mental images of my own that were pretty pornographic but that I didn't share with them! ;-)

Cue much laughter and accusations and snippets flying around like, "I'm seeing Dr R in those little shorts now, thanks very much!"

Completely insane, and a very welcome sanity break.  We now return you to your own mental images - in your case, rkowhore79 , I know it involves getting Jeff naked and doing wicked things to him.  Take pictures - we need a new picspam :-p
