Filed under: Work with tags: conversations, coworkers
Work was very long today. And tedious. I spent about four hours at Building A. I had lunch at noon and left Building A at about 12:45pm. I went to Building B and didn’t leave until a little bit after 3, where I stayed until the end of the work day. Work is tedious. And I need to go back to Building B tomorrow and I need to wear ‘appropriate clothing’ so I can go and muck around with disgustingly dirty things. Heavy emphasis on the word dirty, by the way. Luckily there’s soap. Although the room I’ll be in does not have air conditioning. On the flip side, there’s music.
What’s the weather been like where you are? It’s been ridiculously hot the last couple of days. I’ve been staying hydrated and drinking as much water as humanly possible. Especially after I got back to Building A (the car was parked in direct sunlight as it was the only spot in the parking lot that was available – baked Michelle, anyone?) and just gulped down water and stood in front of a fan for a while. Which was nice, honestly. I was tempted to dump my cup over my head, but I knew about five seconds after doing it (or less), I’d totally regret it because it’d just be awkwardly uncomfortable. But I shall leave off with some conversation snippets that I had with a coworker today (he was joking, by the way).
V: You should go home. Or go to the beach with your boyfriend.
M: What if I don’t have one?
V: [pause] You don’t have a boyfriend? Why not? What is wrong with you?
M: [laughs] Maybe all the guys my age are immature.
V: That’s why you date someone older.
M: I don’t think some people improve with age.
V: I’m mature now, we can go to the beach together.
M: [laughs] Right…
So how was your day today? Did you do anything?
