To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

More "who's on first?" musings from my office.

Scene: Lunchroom
Time: Lunch
Preface: Apparently there is a hot guy that comes in to pick-up and drop-off plans. Neither Jackie or I have ever seen him. He MAY or MAY NOT be real.

Catherine: Oh my gosh... have you guys seen Victorio?
Brandy: Ummm, yes. And, he is Yummy!
Jackie and Ali (in unison): Victorio? Who's Victorio?
Brandy: He is Italiain. He has blue eyes. He is yummy.
Chris: I talked to that dude for 45 minutes. I couldn't understand a word he was saying.
Catherine: He is so handsome. I have a crush on him.
Jackie and Ali (in unison): Who is Victorio?
Ali: Is that really his name? Victorio? Does he work here?
Jackie: Yea. How is it that we've never seen him?
Catherine: He delivers the plans.
Brandy: And, he is yummy.

About 2 hours later...

Catherine: He came in and he grabbed my hand and kissed me on the cheek. What does that mean?
Ali: Who did? Valentino?
Catherine: Ha ha ha, Valentino!?! Ha ha ha.
Ali: What is his name again? Ferragamo?
Catherine: Ha ha ha. I have his autograph!
Ali: Salvatore Ferragamo?
Catherine: No, Vince Ferragamo! Who is Salvatore?
Ali: A very ritzy 1920's designer who made handbags and shoes. Who is Vince?
Catherine: A football player. Are the only people you know fashion people.
Ali: Well, let's put it this way. I am investing in stock. Wes is giving me advice. But, he's nervous that he'll feel bad if I don't make money. So, I assured him this was just play money I was working with. I told him that if I lost it all I would just wear the same thing twice. It can't be that bad, other people do it all the time.
Catherine: Oh my gosh. You are so funny.
Ali: To answer your question Catherine, I think that means he's your boyfriend. Though, I am not very good at this kind of stuff.
Catherine: Good. I think so, too.

I repeated this story to Jackie. She started laughing, hard.

Jackie: Valentino! You are so funny. Valentino.
Ali: I really thought that was his name.
Jackie: Valentino??? Ha ha ha. What is it really? Vitiligo?
Ali: I don't think so. I think that's the Michael Jackson skin disease right?
Catherine: His name is Victorio.
Jackie: What kind of name is Victorio?
Ali: I know, right???
