I have a work-neighbor that I’m moderately friendly with. This is a tremendous achievement for me — “Alicia” is not just a really nice person, but also very attractive.
“Very attractive” being polite-speak for “so insanely hot, she makes me want to sit up and howl at the moon.”
Anyway, being friendly with her is so remarkable because she’s half my age. Had I known her when I was her age, I’d have been far, far too intimidated to even speak to her.
But back to the topic at hand. I spotted her outside her workplace (we were both taking a brief break) and she looked unhappy.
“Oh, this customer chewed me out.”
“Huh? What the hell?”
“He was all upset and called me a ‘stupid bitch.’ I told him he could leave.”
“That’s a terrible thing to say!”
“I mean, you’re not stupid at all!”
And for my show of support, I got a wincing glare.
Which was still absolutely adorable.
