You know those kinds of co-workers you look forward to seeing every day because they make work a fun and pleasant place to be?

Diane isn’t one of those.

 “Who,” asked the Pressman, as we walked to the study area, “is Diane?”

“Someone who takes my ancestry to heart,” I said.  “She’s the one who rescued you from certain vehicular homicide in front of the staff parking entrance a couple weeks ago.”

“You would not have hit me,” he said.

“I appreciate the benefit of the doubt.”

“Your car was traveling less than one-point-six kilometers per hour,” he said, “and I was fully capable of stepping out of the way.”

  1. Love how much of their personalities are revealed in this six! And look how much has changed since then. 🙂

  2. Reynard’s ability to deadpan every response is admirable. I fall in love with him over again with every snippet. And I totally know a Diane or two, myself. Have a good week, Sarah!

    • He’s a keeper. 😀

      Every workplace has a Diane—I think there’s a federal mandate or something.

      You, too! Are you headed back to school tomorrow?

      • Perhaps it is. Keep us on our toes? Haha. And yes, but we went back last Wednesday. Which is fine by me as I got a little taste of being back and then a weekend to mull over it. XD

  3. This version of Pressman seems to have a bit of Danny DeVito in him! How in the world can anyone drive that slowly? I think my car idles faster. ;-P

Talk to me!
