[fades] browns and reds

Disconcerting office conversation:

Speaker1: "Oh, my boys pee all over the house."
Speaker2: "Oh, yeah, I have boys too. My house is a mess."
Speaker1: "Hard to find anyone to house-sit."
Speaker2: "I can house sit for you. Do you have a license?"

It took me a good 20 seconds to realizing they were probably talking about pets.

[fades] browns and reds

biological warfare--

I have long had the idea that microwave popcorn should be illegal in a work environment. I mean, I can't have any, and that smell saturates the entire department with buttery popcorny goodness.

But I have found the response weapon.

Cinnamon-sugar toaster pastries.

That scent penetrates walls.

Suck it, popcorn eaters!
