Election Day 2012 Throwback

So, I just want to put this little story up because it’s noteworthy. On Election night, the results finally posted and I saw that President Obama was re-elected. I was so happy. I also drank a lot of alcohol that night. I drank 2 full size cans of Four Lokos and a lot of other stuff. I went crazy. I cried for two-hours straight and danced around the office like a butterfly. I’m not going to lie, I was the party.

The next morning, I woke up. I was covered in Presidential bumper stickers. Clark woke me up and offered me a beer. We drank ourselves silly for two weeks.

I miss it.

Diplomats

I’ve been friends with someone in the foreign service and I have to say it’s been an interesting friendship.

  • Diplomat: Why, Hello.
  • Donna: Hello..how are you?
  • Diplomat: I’m doing just well and how about yourself?
  • Donna: I’m doing well.

(I’m staring at the diplomat and I see that he has a tattoo on his arm)

  • Donna: Oh! You have a tattoo? That’s very cool. What is it?
  • Diplomat: Oh, this? It’s swimming koi. It starts from my wrists and goes around my shoulder..all the way to the top of my butt cheek?
  • Donna: …

(I start laughing hysterically)

  • Diplomat: Is that funny?
  • Donna: Why would you tell me that?
  • Diplomat: I thought it would interest you.

I’ve known this diplomat for a while and these kind of conversations are nothing new. He’s a young gun in the foreign service and he likes to flirt. I can’t lie and say that I’m not attracted to him. Thankfully, I’ve been creeped out by him enough that I don’t act on any urges.
