baby shower for a co-worker, Debbie O'Dell-Brownberry, this morning (pheromones on Mach 10!) and she volunteers her observation that a large number of women at work have gotten pregnant lately.
Naturally, I expect all eyes to drift toward Denny Dance, given my preternatural fertility. Lord knows, although some say the workplace is off limits for discussions of carnality, I treat the topic like a liver at a frat party.
The next thing I know, Debs says "there must be something in the water around here."
Naturally, I replied "like what, my balls?"
I was then rudely sent home by Easy Ed Verhowski (who I have a bit of a history with). Does anyone out there know what an unpaid suspension pending formal termination proceedings means?
I don't either. I hate that Orwellian HR Officespeak that's all the rage today.
So was Denny totally, completely, unambiguously 100% in the right today?
I'll take your silence as a healthy, empathetic affirmation.
