"I'm on your countertop checking out what's in your smoothie."

If I get past today, I will make my way to my usual watering hole and drink like my life depended on it.

J: Why are you a threesome today? Usually it's just Batman and Robin…
He: You mean she broke the rules today and brought someone ugly?

Beer stories –
She: I've never had a Hen's night. I had 2 bridesmaids. One of them was being evicted from her rental and the other had cancer. So no one had time for a Hen's night.
He: You tell the saddest stories, you know.

Names in coffee joints –
"I am M. She is Boss."

Marriage advice –
"Don't marry musicians. Musicians are unstable."
"You're talking about yourself, right?"
"I thought musicians are just passionate, sensitive and all that?"
"Unless you can deal with a spouse who constantly goes MIA to hide in her music, don't."

That said, litigation lawyers are also unstable.

Me: The Future of Money Laundering.

"Bye bye. I am gone to find the other half of my brain."

"What are you doing in my cube?!"
"I was going to leave you a note."
"About what?"
"About whether my continued presence in this office is essential for your general well being."

I found a place that makes me good chai. But I avoid it in the mornings because someone I know will be there and I don't really want to see said person in the morning. Ugh.

"This is kinda deja vu!"
"You dreamt about this before?"
"Not sure. But I do dream about work a lot."
"Don't dream about me too much okay? My husband will want to kill you if he finds out."

Me: Wanna grab a bite?
He: No. I think we drink too much.
