Dream woman

After the first part of today's shift I got into our canteen and was immediately approached by a colleague. He wanted to give me a hug and he called me his dream woman.

Much as I appreciate being called a dream woman and much as I like being hugged, I suspected ulterior motives. Because only five minutes before I had had a call from the traffic organiser to ask me whether I was coming in soon. 

So, I said no to the hug and replied to his 'dream woman', that I was only a dream woman because I had the key to the coffee machine. And since the coffee machine was empty for coffee... 

He could of course have said that I was always his dream woman, but I think he was so shocked by my (correct) assessment of his intentions, he was a bit lost for words.

The sad thing was though, that by the time I had finished filling up the machine, he had had to go on to the next part of his shift. Without coffee!!

    1. He gives me hugs on other days, when there is enough coffee.

      The shot was taken a few years ago during that photo shoot. I hope to have one some day with my sister.

  4. Great picture!

    I always appreciate straight talk rather than flattery; I would want him to say what he wanted rather than speak as he did.

    1. Me and two others. So, there will always be somebody to fill up the machine in case of illness or holiday.

      How I got the 'job'? I was asked, I said yes. Reward? Half price on any staff outings.

    2. Between soccer games, visiting sisters and catching a 24 hour bug I am behind on reading your blog and this response. Half price is a good reason to be a coffee person.

  8. You nailed it. He can't use that line anymore because he knows that it won't work.

  9. Wait, that didn't sound right. I believe you are someone's dream woman and worthy of that title. Just not that guy!
