My Feminine Side…
So there I was… sitting at my desk, working, when I got a man-hug.
Stunned, I turned around and Matt K. (yes, there are 3 Matts in my group at work) said, “It worked. Thanks.”
I had helped him fix the problem with the dual-monitor setup on his newly reinstalled Ubuntu 10.10 system.
“You’re welcome,” I said, “But it didn’t work for me… ever,” referring to the hug.
Matt B. chimed in, “What just happened?”
K said, “Matt apparently doesn’t like hugs.”
“Are you sure of that or did he just not expect a man-hug while sitting at his desk?” B said incredulously.
“I guess he doesn’t have much of a feminine side.” said K.
To which I retorted, “Yes, I do. Her name is Rachel.”
“You know, one time, I hugged Rachel’s cousin’s husband — just to freak him out. To this day, he won’t come near me. It was pretty awesome.”
And we all laughed.
