Today was a classic though.
I’m the first one in the office and am at my desk when J enters. We do our usual small talk “Hello, how are you, nice day isn’t it?”
So far so good so ok.
Then M arrives and J explodes in an apoplexy of effusiveness: “Oh wow you look lovely and so summery! Your skirt is really pretty. You really look so nice and I love what you’ve done to your hair… oh you are so beautiful really, you should always wear your hair down and that top is just pretty and…”
M is all “thank you, thank you, you are so kind, thank you…”
They stop and a horrid pause descends.
Then J looks at me and says: “Oh you’re lovely too.”
Charlie says: Looking good is hard work. One has to have baths.
Thank you all so much for reading my little story. I really appreciate that you've taken the time to do so.
Have a tenacious Thursday everyone!
