down i go...

filler conversation always gets me in trouble--verbally.

i work for a financial company a couple nights a week. i’m not there often, so i don’t know everyone as well as i probably should. it seems that i’m always stuck riding in the elevator with co-workers i know the least. i’m not a fan of small talk, but i’ll engage when given no choice. last night, pink tie was explaining that his wife would be having a baby the following day (i still can’t get over planned birth, it just seems weird). when we walked out i wished him good luck, and i hoped everything comes out nicely.

shit.

Sarah--

At least you didn't make a comment about "one mo' baby" like I would have. Ha!

What did Pink Tie do when you said that?

I can only speak for myself here but I thoroughly enjoy your verbal mistakes.

Reminds me of a crummy sitcom where you wish you could reach your arm in the television and cover the characters mouth before they said something.

I think you were born with your foot-in-mouth. But that's why we love you. By the way, I usually catch myself saying the same thing to GG when I run into him in the bathroom.
