Work Conversation

Conversation I had with a colleague who regularly falls asleep at her desk:

Her (looking at rain): Do you have an umbrella?

Me: Yes.

Her: I have one here but you wouldn’t want that, you’d get a lot of funny looks if you used that, so you would.

I nod vaguely. What kind of outlandish contraption could this possibly be? Made of endangered rhino skin perhaps, or live puppies glued together?

Her: It’s purple. Ha ha ha. You’d get a lot of funny looks. Ha ha.

This is a conversation I’ve now had with her the last three times it rained.
