…but I still think he’s cute.
The Producer: (exiting) Oh, hi. What’s up?
Team Gingerbread: (holding up an empty bottle of Windex) I came to get some more of this
The Producer: Likely story
Team Gingerbread: No, you’re right. I normally stroll around with an empty bottle. It’s a good conversation starter. (rambling) Seriously, me and the Windex, we’re tight. Windex is my homeboy (cringing – seriously, this is the best I could come up with?)
The Producer: (laughs)
The Producer: There’s always an awkward silence when you come over here for stuff. It’s like we had a one-night stand and have no idea how to act around each other.
Team Gingerbread: (stunned/thinking about what it would be like) – silence –
Team Gingerbread: Yeah… (awkward banter about our torrid affair ensues)
I was so flustered by this exchange – partly because the three girls he works with were standing a few feet away from us (eavesdropping), and partly because I’ve kinda been crushing on him and he’s totally scene – that I totally over-analyzed the fuck out of [the conversation], and called a friend to rehash on the bus all the way home.
