The look-a-like

Whilst talking about very important work-related things with a co-worker at her cubicle (oh! how I love cubicles), we both had a good view of all the people coming in the front door.

As we’re chatting about aforementioned very important work-related things, three men come into the office. Neither of us recognize these men and it’s obvious they are there for a meeting. This, in itself, is not anything strange. But the event did provide a break in our discussion about very important work-related things and the conversation that followed went like this:

Claire: Hmm, one of them was kind of cute.

Co-worker: Incredulously stares at Claire

Claire: What? He was!

Co-worker: You do realize he looked just like your boyfriend.

And he did! He looked like the boyfriend in horn-rimmed glasses.

I think the boyfriend should be heartened to know that if I were ever to have an affair, it would at least be with someone who looked like him.

I told him such and he didn’t exactly feel heartened. Fortunately, affairs aren’t really my thing.

Hi There!

I'm Claire. I like to write about ridiculous things.

I love chocolate but don't think cheese and cake belong together.

I often wish it was socially acceptable to wear glitter before 10pm.
