Strange social encounters

Don't you love pictures with work colleagues?

Look at us below, we are so incredibly awkward. Bob (the guy in the middle) has no idea what to do with his arms.

Clearly he has decided touching us is out of the question. I love it.

I remember the time Bob and I were in DC with Dave C. After going to dinner we went to cold stone. We sat outside on a long bench. I sat on one end and Bob sat on the other end of the bench. Then Dave C decided it was socially acceptable to sit between us - the bench wasn't big enough for 3 grown men to be sitting on together. I quickly ate my ice cream and stood up cause I felt awkward. So then it was just Bob and Dave C on the bench still sitting real close. For about 25 minutes while Dave C ate the biggest waffle cone you can get at Cold Stone. That was humorous.

Reading it over it doesn't sound that funny, but if you knew Dave C (a co-worker, not a friend) you would think it was funny.

I love that story. It never gets old.

ole bob here is either flexing his muscles for the camera or he can think of nothing more vile or offensive than brushing up against these two girls...co-workers...who knows how to deal with them?

i'm still laughing at your awkward night in bed with your brother! SO hilarious!

I just laughed outloud. If I had had food in my mouth, it would have ended up all over my computer screen.

Oh and why hasn't anyone mentioned how great you look in that picture? I'm serious. You look great.

carrie said...

thanks Janice!

that is very funny. and you do look fantastic in that picture, i wish i was as pretty as you.

totally off the subject of bob, but did you get the free postcards? i forgot to tell you to order early because you can pay boat loads in shipping to get here before christmas.

carrie said...

actually i ended up being too lazy to design my own thing, so i didn't go the postcard route. I had a vision that i couldn't quite pull off so I go frustrated and gave up (I used a template from another vendor). thanks for the reminder though.

ps - you are the italian goddess and i am the freckled american

Natalee said...

when we get together, I need to show you a few tricks of the trade for the postcards, makes it easy to design, but then again, I am not sure how professional looking...sorry, I should stop commenting and just call you. cannot wait to see you. I hope certain people let me escape.

I tried to mail you your birthday gift yesterday b/c I really wanted you to have it ASAP. but it would have cost $15. are you kidding me? so is there any chance when you are here I'll be steal you away for an hour or so and give you your gift? when are you coming?

sara said...

you two really need to get on facebook.

Yah Yah said...

What? I think $15 is a steal to pay to send me to Natalee for her birthday!!! Not to mention the fact that I was willing to go 3rd Class.

Sheesh
