10.12.2004  

for the sake of my writing, i might actually move my desk into the cafeteria
i'm sure many of you remember the conversation i overheard between two coworkers while trying to resist the tempatation of the hostess cupcakes with creamy filling.

[note: no. i could not resist the temptation of the hostess cupcakes with creamy filling. i am, after all, only human.]

so, today, during lunch, the following:

coworker 1: "hey...what is that you're eating?"

coworker 2: "it's a bread bowl."

coworker 1: "a bread bowl?!"

coworker 2: "yep. with tomato basil soup."

coworker 1: "is that like a pot pie?"

coworker 2: "no. it's like a bowl made out of bread. with soup in it."

coworker 1: "'cause i hate pot pies. don't like 'em. they give me the creeps."

coworker 3: "did they invent those in philadelphia?"

coworker 1: "no. wait...do you mean bread bowls? or pot pies?"

coworker 3: "pot pies. because that seems like something they would invent in philadelphia."

coworker 1: "oh. no. they didn't invent pot pies in philadelphia. they invented other stuff there, though. like...chocolate."

coworker 3: "really? i didn't know they invented chocolate in philadelphia."

coworker 1: "yeah. well, you know...i mean...chocolate in america."

coworker 3: "oh."

honestly, i have to apologize because i'm sure there was probably more really good stuff after that, but i had to leave because i absolutely was not going to be able to keep it together one minute longer.
