What my co-workers hear every day at about 4:00:
Me: Mumble mumble darn mumble mumble stupid photo challenge mumble <daily theme word> expletive mumble I forgot mumble expletive what should I use for <daily theme word> mumble.
Sometimes they are helpful and throw out ideas, other times they simply ignore me or make some kind of “That’s What She Said” comment.
Today, however, was the best.
Me: Mumble mumble darn mumble mumble stupid photo challenge mumble <STEEL> expletive mumble I forgot mumble expletive what should I use for <STEEL> mumble.
My Co-Worker: STEEL?! Did you say STEEL?!?!
And then it hit me. My GOODNESS. I have the number one Steelers fan sitting right next to me. I am talking, “Steel flows through her blood” kind of fan.
Works for me!
Amazingly, her cubicle was somewhat limited in Steelers décor. However, her Iphone was quite a different thing!
“Let’s see. Here’s a picture. Oh, here’s one too. What about this one?” I chose my two favorites and put them together… giving me today’s photo challenge theme, “STEEL!”
