“I remembered you yesterday,” she said.
“That’s nice,” I replied, obviously delighted.
“I was at Al Ain Zoo,” she shot back, diluting the joy.
It has happened to me quite a few times.
“I dreamt of you yesterday,” said a pretty colleague at my former newspaper office.
I hid my joy and acted as if I was not enamoured. The next day I tried to show off, narrating the girl’s comment to my boss.
“Oh, she said that to you?” he reacted with a sad face. “Just three days ago she said the same thing to me.”
Talking of colleagues, I had an interesting one who slept while on duty and also argued a lot.
“Wake him up,” said my boss once.
“Better not,” replied another colleague. “That’s the only time he doesn’t argue.”
Some colleagues can be real fun. One shared this joke:
A fool took out his torchlight on a dark night, pointed at the sky and told his friend, “Reach the sky by holding on to the light.”
“I will not do that,” answered his partner. “Halfway through you will switch off the light and I will fall.”
