Welcome to another edition of He Said/She Said, where (against strong objections from our PR team), Waynn and I blog one of our actual office conversations.
Today’s Topic: Colilove
Waynn: I love what [redacted name*] and [redacted name*] are working on.
Lisa: I know. They seemed to really hit it off…OMG what if they got married?!
Waynn: You would probably get to officiate.
Lisa: OMG. I am so excited.
Waynn: Wait. I wasn’t serious.
Lisa: Can I ask them if they’re interested in each other?
Waynn: Absolutely not.
Lisa: What if I just tell one that the other is single?
Lisa: I could tell [name redacted]’s mom about [name redacted]. We’re Facebook friends.
Waynn: Worst idea ever.
Lisa: Really? I mean, what’s the harm?
Waynn: Gee, you make them uncomfortable? Or one does, in fact, like the other, but it isn’t reciprocated. And then one gets depressed. Bad for business.
Lisa: You know, Waynn, it isn’t always about the bottom line for me.
(two minutes pass)
Waynn: What are you doing?
Waynn: Let me see your monitor.
Waynn: Seriously. Turn your monitor.
Lisa: I promise I’m not writing them…I’m just writing ABOUT them…
*redacted names of two of our authors/editors/engineers/designers. We really can’t get any more specific than that for hopefully obvious reasons.
