It was a little past six in the evening. We were sitting in our meeting room with a guy who used to be my next door neighbor’s goofy little nephew, but is now all grown up and a really sharp search-engine professional. And he's cute, too.
Anyway, there was a knock on the door. Jill and Susie, who are the Yarndex godesses, came in to let us know they were leaving for the evening. Jill was holding envelopes to take to the mailbox.
“Anything you want mailed?” she asked as she headed toward the exit.
“Alex,” I told her.
She glanced at him quickly as she continued to the door and commented drily, “We haven’t got enough postage in the meter to ship him far enough away.”
Interesting things happen when a man is outnumbered by women – even when he’s the boss.
