Giving Head (or not)

I recently found myself in a car with one of my colleagues. We were snarkily discussing the distribution of a small pot of money by our department head. We got miniscule raises (yes, raises, I know, shocking). We were wondering where the hell the money could have gone…even our miniscule raises do not add up to the money pot. I look over. The car rapidly approaching, then passing us is a very expensive little foreign convertible. Driving the car? Department head. I shit you not. It could only have been better if a bikini clad Tawny Kitaen was in the passenger seat and $100 bills were flying out.

    Annieem: Lexi. Excellent new word, driven by assi.

  6. I got your ESP loud and clear, but all I kept hearing was you mentally composing odes to Cheetos! "Orange and crunchy, you save me when munchy..." It was lovely, but I really needed to know whether they had the right to cross examine you!

    Sigh. At least I was not literally crying post-exam like some of my classmates.

  8. Hey, at least your Dept Head doesn't come sailing into school on his shiny new Ducati Motorcycle. Or make sure to rev it up super loud before he leaves just in case you forgot how much cooler he is than you .

  9. A Ducati? That really ups the ante, I'll have to aspire to arriving at work in a yacht.

  10. Pretty awesome. I hear that in some big pharma companies, the president has a chauffered Lexus with an armed bodyguard. Just a rumor, though...
