There is this man at work. We'll call him José. Let me preface this by saying that José is gorgeous. He's also off the market--married, kids, grandkid--but still gorgeous. He's only like 29 (yeah, I know, world's youngest grandpa), so it's not like he's an old guy. Anyway, he had an accident at home a couple of weeks ago and ended up breaking his wrist. He has a nice black cast on that baby and I like to tease him about its debilitating effects.
Well, have you ever tried to tie your shoes or button your pants with a cast on? I have and it's not very easy! Apparently it's not easy to unbotton things either, and that's where the awkwardness comes into play. I was helping Summer Intern learn something (my memory of other surround events was instantly erased) when José came up to us, spun his butt cheek toward me, and asked me if I could unbutton his pocket. I was about to laugh out loud and ask him if he was for stinkin' kidding me, but a glance at his face told me he was not joking. Now I know any one of my female coworkers would have taken complete advantage of this situation, as it was almost a complete invitation to grab his booty, but I resisted the temptation. (A booty grab would have been much more awkward!) I gingerly pinched the hem of his pocket, pulled it out and undid the button. He thanked me, stuck his radio in his pocket, turned and walked away.
Summer Intern and I immediately died laughing. She said she wasa jealous. I still don't know what to say. Definately the awkward situation of the week, if not month! Check out Tova's awkward situation on her blog, Secret Life of Tova Darling.
