The Place Where I Work: Just What I Needed

It's funny how Hell skewed my perception of life. It made me not want to work, and that meant finding a rich douchebag to support my trivial lifestyle and want to write whilst sipping thick French cocoa.
I was awoken today by a call from one of my agencies about an assignment for the day. Since my only other option was sleeping and lounging around till Bones came on, I opted to earn money.
Thank HAY-SUS I know how to prioritize because this assignment has re-taught me the value of working...earning that dollar-while not ending up on a pole or performing some type of sexual act.
I knew things would be good when off the bat I was given bottled water and offered some GOOD coffee. Then I met LI Do or Die (the LI stands for Long Island). Have you ever looked at someone and became instantly enamored?? This happens to me more times than I'd like- hence the many walls I put up to keep bitches from cutting at my tender tender heart....
....SO LI Do or Die introduces herself to me, and I like her immediately because of her VERY pink blazer and strong Long Island accent. She is sarcastic and funny...and eats cup-o-noodles at her desk. LIDOD knows she has it going on, so underneath her blazer is a thin sweater with a hint of her flat tummy showing. LIDOD is in her late 30's early 40's- do you understand how amazing she is?? I imagine us going to Dallas BBQ after work. Ordering everything 'Texas sized'. LIDOD gives me life lessons...like when I start whining about a dude she'll say: did you let him know that he could put in you?
I'll blush and respond: no.
She'll roll her eyes at me and take a long drag of her cigarette (and THEY WILL let her smoke at this Dallas BBQ, eff Bloomberg) and she will say: then shut the fuck up. a man will never know anything unless YOU let him know he can put it in!
*sigh*
I was just content with knowing that LI Do or Die existed, but my day got better. Something about me and IT dudes, I think they can sense my inner nerd. Anyways, The Ladies Man- because he honestly spoke just like the Tim Meadows character 'the ladies man' comes into the office to follow-up on something he did yesterday. He see's me and turns his body away from me, yet he is still speaking to me. I find this fascinating! Along with the lisp and his fidgety use of his BlackBerry, it was confusing talking to him...but he was handsome, so I kept it pleasant.
Towards the end of our brief, awkward convo, he turns to face me FULL ON and says, "You are beautiful, I'm sorry, I just had to say that. You make me very nervous."
Awww. I smile and say 'thanks' n' 'oh geez'. He asks my name and says, "I won't remember that, so I'll just call you beautiful." WOW. Score 1 for THE LADIES MAN!!! Before he left for the day, he made a point to tell me how 'really beautiful' I am and I made a point not to ask him about some courvoseiur. :)

All in all, this is just what I needed to feel like me again and not some blank faced whore seeking out a rich douche. :) Win-win.

  1. Yes! I love that The Ladies Man turned away from you to talk because he was so enamored with you! Maybe you should try that with LI Do or Die!
