The other day, Officemate Eric, Coworker Charley and yours truly were discussing the decscent of the Christmas season as we wandered across town (toward a bar, of course) after work.
Helen: Oh god, I hate Christmas music.
Eric: You hate everything.
Helen: Yeah, but I really, really hate Christmas music.
In fact, there are only two things I hate more: Mayonnaise, and...
Charley: The French?
Helen: (Stunned, deeply impressed pause) Yes, that's right.
The French! Thank you, Charley.
Charley: No problem.
Somehow, the chorus of "Let it Snow" blaring from a storefront as we passed didn't bother me quite so much after that.
This job...it's a keeper.
