Paperclipping

Today, a guest came in to drop of some papers for a coworker. He asked me if I had a letter sized envelope in which he could place them. I apologized, told him no, and offered him a regular business envelope. He said no, he'd rather not fold them, so I offered him a paper clip. He says okay.

So I turn toward my desk drawer, open it, and extract a paper clip. As I turn toward him to hand him said paper clip, I see that he already has one, and is clipping the papers together. As he pulls his hand away, this is the sight that greets my eyes:

(yes, I stole the paper clip and replaced it with a normal one just so I could take photos of it!)

I don't shock easily. Even if I do get shocked by something, I rarely get stunned to the point of silence. I'll tell you though, this did it. There are some things that you simply do NOT expect to see at work, much less handed to you by a kindly old man! Was this guy really carrying THAT around with him, and handing it to a complete stranger? A female stranger no less?

I kinda gave him a blank stare, as he handed me the stack of papers. Now, he was facing me, so what I saw was the backside of the stack of paper. He tilted them forward, towards me, so that as I took them, I was able to see the front of the stack. This it what I saw:

Yeah. I'm a dork. Funny that it was a bone though, huh? I'm thinking, PHEW, self, you need to get your mind outta the gutter!!! But then, I wondered if it was just me, so I showed it to a few select coworkers (you know, the cool ones) and they thought the same thing that I did. It wasn't just me!

It was brought to my attention that I didn't have any very recent photos of myself (that weren't maternity/belly shots anyway), so as I was having a pretty decent hair day yesterday, I took a few by the kitchen window. I actually managed to get one that I liked too.

I could have used a little lip gloss, but eh. It was 7:15 in the morning! I need to clean off my hutch. I see a package of fondant and my vitamins on there, and that looks messy/cluttered. NEXT weekend, I swear!

I totally fell for it, too! Although, I'm sure you can find "those" clips online somewhere. I bet a Pea would know...

LOL! That is funny. I'm glad that you said what it was though. Cause in the photos I was dorky enough to think it was a shopping bag and the clip was the handle. Duh me.
