I’m Still Laughing…


This is a picture of my desk. You’ll notice it has typical items that one might need during a busy work day. Phone, Aquafina, lotion, Dallas Cowboys foam finger, Captain America pez dispenser, I heart Jim sticky notes…the usual.

Cut to earlier this week. A fellow co-worker visited my office and made a joke about croutons. Being the nice person I am, I offered a fake courtesy laugh (even though I didn’t get it) and went about my day. Until he came in that afternoon and started talking about croutons again. What the crap? He’d talk about how they smelled and asked if they exfoliated. I finally had to call him out on it.

“Dave…what in the world are you talking about croutons for?”

“I figured you liked them.”

“Sure, but what does that have to do with anything?”

“Your lotion.”

Home boy thought my “Warm Vanilla Sugar” hand cream from Bath & Body Works was croutons! Take a closer look at the label! You can’t blame him!

I haven’t laughed that hard in a long, long time. Thanks Dave. Thanks for being a silly, silly boy.

Maybe he was trying to hit on you?? You know trying to find something in common between the two of you? You know how boys can be! Is he cute?

Oh Lincee…that is priceless! What a hoot! Warm Vanilla Sugar is my favorite lotion…and I have never gotten hungry looking at it-go figure! Oh, and I agree with Cass!

LOL – I have the mini-croutons version on my desk! I’ve been trying to figure out what those really looked like!

Tell Dave thanks for me, too!

That’s a riot. I love when co-workers come into your workspace/cube/office and immediately want to find some “friend commonality” so they begin to comment on stuff you have lying around…

…but that foam finger is really more the one I would have gone with. Does that come in handy in company meetings? I’d be using it for sure.

My co-worker claimed my scarf looked like a Muppet, so I blogged about it today. Gotta love work humor.

I think I nearly peed my pant. I’ve only been reading your blog since this past bachelor. You are have a tremendous talent.

As a fellow Texan, I am sure you share my angst at the Cowboys’ rapid departure from the playoff picture.

I hate pink.

I have the same lotion and I seem to always take a double take when looking at it. I totally get the crouton thing. I was thinking brown sponges, though.

Where did you get the “I heart Jim” post its??

Good job Tommy Boy. I didn’t want to be the only one to point out that’s Wolverine ably dispensing Pez. I just had a mental whiff of what crouton hand lotion would smell like. Oof.

1. Dave hitting on me? I think not. He’s just a dork!

2. Foam finger? Needed it for a photo shoot. I do not like the Dallas Cowboys. Long story that I’ll have to tell you one day. Involves me, the stadium, FIVE INTERVIEWS and a nasty phone call.

3. Wolverine…noted.

4. I Heart Jim note pads: purchased at Target

5. You guys rock.
