At Least I Didn't Break Anything

We have a new attorney at work and I've been too busy to be formally introduced so I took care of that in my own unique way Friday. I did it in a way that most of you won't be surprised to hear at all.

I was talking to the paralegal whose office is two doors down from his office. As I exited her office, I tripped over a box and stumbled two steps making a sound not unlike that of a herd of stampeding elephants. My not-so-graceful stumbling brought me to a screeching halt right in front of the new guy's open office door where he was, of course, sitting.

Not only was he sitting there, he was looking out his door to see what all the racket was about. When I realized I wasn't going to fall all the way to the ground, I was so happy that I looked up with a big stupid grin on my face. A quick glance to my left brought me eye-to-eye with the new guy.

I just looked at him and said, "Laurie." I do know how to make a first impression.

Jen - You would have laughed so hard.

Is he cute? Is he single? Is he too young for me?

Laurie said...

Laura - He is cute, I'm not sure about his age but he is married and expecting his first baby THIS WEEK. :)

Wow! Best wishes to him and his family!

Laurie said...

Laura - He's a really nice guy. He didn't laugh or anything when I almost fell although I detect a certain glimmer in his eye when I pass him in the hall...like he's expecting me to fall or something. :)

You do realize that whenever my wife trips or stumbles, I will now have to make a "You did a Laurie!" comment.

Grimm - Hahahaha! That's great!
