She's Cold as Ice

Sure enough, I now have Jacob's cold. I can't take cold medications so it tends to put me a little off of my game.

However I put on my big girl panties and went to work, to wage my daily battle against... well, whatever I need to battle. There's always something.

But I'm trying to be sensible, drinking plenty of liquids and all that, and that was why I had a 32 ounce cup of ice water in front of me. HAD is the operative word, here.

Naturally, being a klutz who's somewhat foggy in the head, I knocked into it when I leaned down to open one of my file drawers. Although I managed to catch the cup before it tipped all the way over, I splashed a generous amount down my chest. Including a few pieces of ice, some of which slid down into what COULD be called cleavage (if one were feeling generous) and lodged there.

And even more naturally, because we are very busy, someone Very Important walked into my office to tell me a painfully long story while that ice melted into my bra.

It is not considered Acceptable Professional Office Behavior to reach in and grab ice out of your tatas, so all I could do was try to look as though I was not considering such action and wait for the Very Important Executive to leave.

At least I was wearing black, so the dampness didn't show but let me tell you what... Boobs On Ice will definitely wake you up faster than a double shot of espresso.

I can only imagine trying to have a conversation while ice melted away in your bra. That's some funny stuff.

Also very funny. I probably would have just reached in and pulled the ice out, inadvertently giving everyone in the room a free show... Is maybe why I don't have a job.

Hope you feel better soon.
