Adventures at My Work

8:30am, Co-Worker 1: Oh my gosh! The baby has totally dropped!
8:35am, Co-Worker 2: I think you have a long time to go, your baby hasn’t dropped yet.
8:38am, Co-Worker 3: You’ve dropped so much since yesterday!
8:45am, Co-Worker 4: When is your baby going to drop already?

.............................................................................................

Backstory: This year, our bosses gave us some dark chocolate dipped fortune cookies as a Christmas present. In the middle of the staff meeting today, here’s what happened:

Co-Worker 5: By the way, did you guys all know there are THINGS inside those cookies?
Everyone Else: Things? What sort of things?
Co-Worker 5: Paper! Little pieces of paper!
Boss: Well, they are fortune cookies.
Co-Worker 5: But they’re dipped in chocolate! Why would they still have the fortune inside?! I ate almost the whole thing before I realized there was still a fortune inside!
Boss: I think this is one of those stories that you probably shouldn’t tell too many more people…
Co-Worker 5: But who puts paper inside chocolate dipped cookies?
Everyone Else: They’re fortune cookies!

  1. hehehe :) (about the fortune cookie thing!)

    and "figures" to the baby dropped subject. People are soooooo WEIRD. They should just shutup already.

    Today..I had a parent say to me "I just had to stop by and check out your tummy b/c I've heard that you majorly popped and there could be twins in there"...

    I was SO put off. I couldnt believe it. I have felt "smaller" this entire time and her stupid comment threw me into self-conscious mode! Luckily a 28 week pregnant lady came by and said, "You're tiny, girl! You DO NOT look like you're having twins!"...

    UGhhhhh PEOPLE
