To top things off, some non-Teri news:
“A South Side teenage mother who authorities said no longer wanted a baby because she couldn’t go to parties was held on $600,000 bond Wednesday on charges that she drowned her 5-month-old daughter in a bathtub earlier this month.”
That second one strikes me as bizarre timing because Paige and I just had a conversation in which she wanted to run up to random people on the street and punch them–just to see what would happen. If the article hadn’t specifically said “man” I would have tried to call her to make sure that, you know, she wasn’t being held in jail on assault charges.
And in Teri-news:
Today was a great day, in that I didn’t do much of anything. I had a computer problem at work and spent several hours on and off the phone with an IT guy. When we first started talking I thought to myself, “Man, he has a cute voice.” Later I began to wonder, “Is he flirting with me?” I’m really bad with the flirting thing so just the fact that I was starting to wonder if he was makes me think that he probably was.
Him: “Cool, let’s take a look here…and I realize that I’m saying cool a lot in our conversation. I don’t usually say it this much.”
Me: [laugh] (Aren’t I simply amazing?)
Him: “Go ahead and try the file again.”
Me: “It worked.”
Him: “Cool. Damn, I said it again!”
Him: “Can I put you on hold a second?”
Me: “Sure thing.”
[A coworker asked me who I was talking to.] Me: “An IT guy is trying to fix that whole document opening problem. He gets an A for effort, but it’s still not opening.”
[Co-worker laughs and I wait maybe 5 more seconds before he comes back.] Him: “Okay, sorry about that. And thanks for the A.”
But while my computer was down I got to read my book, so that was nice. Then I helped set up for a surprise baby shower for a coworker. Then I spent an hour and a half at said baby shower. So out of the 8 hours I was at the office, I probably worked for 3 of them.
Oh, and for the record, I looked this IT fella up on our handy-dandy pictorial directory and he is even cuter than his voice had led me to believe.
