Football, Sneezes and Scary Pissed off Women

Today was a grand day at work… really. Everyone was floating on the euphoria of that which is the Gators kicking ass last night. We were all bleary eyed and practically mainlining caffeine to stay awake. Emails were running all over to Floridians who have been forced to leave the state, big Gator fans who bleed orange and blue, to whoop it up a little more over the ‘net.

And, of course, our lone Buckeye was in hiding most of the day. Someone put a box of tissues on his desk. The girl I job share with, who graduated from Florida and wore her NCAA Basketball Championship shirt to work, stopped by his desk and said, ‘I understand. It’s happened to us too…” But I hear she smirked.

Heh. She tried.

Meanwhile the bookends have been up to their antics. It keeps life interesting with those two guys behind me. Good Grief. Their banter…

I was filling in my time card with my back to them both and I sneezed. It was kind of a compressed sneeze, not very loud. Five guys yelled “God Bless You” and the following conversation ensued to the best of my recollection, between the bookends:

Mr. Magoo: what in the hell was that?

Joe: I think she sneezed. I’m surprised she didn’t sneeze her brains out her ears.

Mr. Magoo: That wasn’t a sneeze…

Joe: Yeah. I think it was. She’s so cute.

Mr. Magoo: Ahhhh, yeah, she’s so cute.

Joe: yeah. She is. Our cutie.

Mr. Magoo: But Jesus Christ, don’t piss her off. She’s not cute when she’s pissed off. She’s frickin’ MEAN. WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT piss of BOU!


I suspect next time he has a heart attack at work he’ll let me call 911…

You know, the Gators are not that good. You only won because the Buckeyes decided not to show up.

OSU's issue is they hadn't played an SEC team. If they'd played in the SEC, they'd have been clobbered a couple other times. SEC rules.
