So I casually saunter over to HotPants girl’s desk just to say hi.
“Hey there HotPants girl! What’s up?” (She’s not wearing hotpants today, unfortunately)
“ Ahhh! It’s Isamu-san! Hi!”
“Whatcha doing there?”
“I’m making curtains” (she’s still basically looking down, concentrating intensely on her work)
“Thought so” (I will NOT ask her why she is making curtains because I don’t want my head to explode at 3.30 in the afternoon.) “That’s a nice material too” (royal purple velvet)
“So whatcha getting me for christmas, HotPants girl?”
(she thinks) “How about a date with me?” (she smiles divinely)
“I think Mrs. Isamu might put the kibosh on that idea.”
“Oh. OK” (wide eyed and innocent)
Lord help me.
