Conversations With A Co-Worker

Co-Worker: "We really should order that new postage machine, but I don't want to order it this month, let's do it next month."

Me: "But we need it, we should order it now."

Co-Worker: "I don't want to risk it."

Me: "But we don't even know what's going to happen next month with the economy!" "We could all be wearing loin clothes and trading twinkies as currency!"

Co-Worker : "Then we wouldn't need a postage machine."

Me: "Well played, my friend...well played."

I don't have any twinkies I'm afraid - I'd much prefer if the currency was teabags. So I guess all I'd have would be my loincloth. Great.

...and here I just bought two rolls of first class stamps when I should have bought a loincloth. I guess I'll be the only one wearing a bright yellow (until it gets soiled) bath towel. Just great.

Teabags may work, but only if they're Earl Grey.

You can always fashion the stamps into a loincloth. Especially if they're the ones you lick.

A loincloth is a primative speedo worn by Tarzan usually made out of animal hide.

No Drakes in Chicago (DAMMIT!!!) As per usual the East Coast will have all the good stuff!!! :)
