Little Purple Guy
We had our department holiday lunch today...we are always a bit late with them. It was really yummy, and a fun time as always. Our managers gave a fun little toy to everybody in the department. Flexible little metal people with magnetic hands and feet.

I was happily playing with mine, until B mentioned that different toys came in different colors. Mine was all silver-metallic, and I'd assumed that everyone's was like that.

I looked around the table, and I found that a few people had purple ones! "Darn, now I want purple," I pouted to B. Glancing to my left, I noticed that the guy next to me had stepped away from the table. "Wait, J has a purple one, and he's not guarding it!"

But I felt guilty just trading with him without asking, so I waited until he returned to his seat. Then I turned and aimed my best "Aren't I cute??" smile directly at him.

Anybody who has had the misfortune of dating me would have immediately recognized that I wanted something. He, on the other hand, told me later that he'd never seen me smile quite like that. He wasn't sure if I was going to ask him a question or if I was going to eat him.

It worked though. "Want to trade?" I asked brightly, and he handed over his purple toy without even a pause. Yay, now I have purple!

Then I shared an ice cream chocolate chip cookie sundae thing with B, and he let me have the cherry. It was like the best lunch ever!

Tee-hee! Thanks for the giggle - I laughed out loud at that one...

Good! Yeah, it made me laugh when he said that too.

That looks very cool! I'm sure your "Aren't I cute??" smile is devastating and gets you just about anything you could ask for ;)
