Tinder-ly Tied Up

Work, is for working, or so I’ve been told.

Today, however, was a Tinder moment…at least for Dan-chan. A fact I didn’t know when I walked away from my desk. If I had known I might have been prepared upon return.

Honestly though, nothing can prepare you for the question of, “What’s a Dom?” This is especially true when your focus is not spilling your coffee.

Now, I would expect to be asked about client issues. Maybe even asked about plans for the holidays, or the office holiday party. I would even be prepared to answer a question on hair, makeup, clothing, shoes, etc. Common themes you’d hear conversed about in an office. “What’s a Dom?,” does not rank in my ‘Causal Conversations’ list.

The root cause of this question was, of course, Tinder. Dan-chan had chanced across Brett, a Dom. At least that is what he had listed on his profile. The debate ensued as to whether to swipe right, or pass. The problem: No one could tell Daniella what Dom meant.

There is no way to have a conversation on BDSM without embarrassing some parties involved. And…to avoid potential visits from, or to, HR the solution was simple. I’m buying her a book! In the meantime she should probably say no to Brett.

I can’t wait to see what tomorrows question will be….

Is it Bright in Here?

Today we discuss Brightness…and Tea. matcha

Dan-chan, the youngest, again. Enjoys Matcha Green Tea. Nothing unique, or overly surprising there. Matcha tastes good and it is healthy. Add a little powdered Matcha to a smoothie and you have extra energy for the day. Simple. Effective. Tasty!

Well, maybe not so simple. You see, the directions on the package recommend keeping it in ‘a cool, dark place.’ We work in an office. That really should be simple enough. What else is a filing cabinet for, right?

Enter Dan-chan…and her statement of the day. This came right after she asked, “Guess where I put my Matcha?”

“I put it in the filing cabinet drawer, ’cause it said to keep in a cool, dark place. Oh, Wait! I have yellow folders in there. It may be two bright.”

No, no my dear, it isn’t too bright.

And… Randomness!

Aww, a quiet Monday morning.

It starts with a mass migration to the life giving coffee machine. It ends with a mass fleeing of the building. It is the in-between events which make the day. It is all coffee, conversations, meetings, and…

“What’s the best vibrator to buy?”

Well… the smaller ones are cheaper, the medium sized ones offer more options, and the large ones are for the brave at heart. Is purple better than pink? Glass better than silicone? Bullets or Rabbits?

“Oh, and did you get the cross connection letters done?”

Wait! What?

Yes, because random conversations last less than ten minutes! Welcome to our world!
