Eau d'Soy Milk

Remember that time I tried to wear multiple necklaces to work and they put me in a choke-hold in my bathroom?

Well apparently the necklace gods are conspiring against me again today...

This morning, my purple puckered shirt looked a little sparse in the mirror, so I selected a long silver chain with smokey grey elliptical beads to dress it up a bit. I made the necklace myself a few years ago, and I think it's pretty cute. I believe it has even earned a few compliments in the past.

Anywhoo, I went down to our free coffee bar this morning and got myself a nice vanilla soy latte in my big company mug, and was all smiles and sunshine as I returned to my desk with it. But as I lowered myself into my chair, my necklace lowered itself into my mug, then jumped back out like a cat in a bathtub, flinging frothy milk all over the front of my shirt, pants and part of my desk.

I'm not sure if soy milk emanates the same lovely sour smell that cow milk does when it's been out in the warm air too long. I suppose I'll find out by the end of the day...

Wow, that was awkward said...

I end up wearing my breakfast and/or lunch quite often. I finally got smart and have an extra shirt at the office.

Did you have a bunch of meetings and a big presentation to make today?

Wow - No they don't let me speak to other people much around here. I might do something stupid like fling soy milk at a marketing exec.

Free coffee bar sounds awesome. Is your work hiring???

SoMi's Nilsa said...

Oh my. That's no fun. What was the verdict? Did you survive???

Mel Heth said...

Semicharmed - Yeah I guess boys never have to deal with necklaces in their coffee!

Amy - Haha they're probably hiring in some capacity but that would be quite a long commute for you!

Nilsa - I seemed to come out okay at the end of the day. Unless I stunk and no one told me... My fly was down for awhile yesterday and no one told me about that...
