The scene: Farewell lunch for my boss who is going on maternity leave; ten senior HR people, consisting of my project team, my new boss, my boss’s boss (BB), and her peers.

Mid conversation BB turns to me and says, “CP, Do you know Draconian?”
CP (Should I lie???): “Errr Yes
BB: “I believe he is single, would you consider being set up with him? I think you both have very similar qualities and interests, frankly I think you guys would be a perfect match.”
CP: (Blushing, the kind of blushing where you feel your ears getting hot, and your face going red~ I don’t think I have ever blushed before.) “err….”
BB: “I could always set things up, introduce you to each other, frankly I think he would fall for you in a heart beat……”

Others in the table lean forward and begin to express opinions on how exactly we are suited to each other.

Thus I am convinced, the gods are against me. It’s hard enough getting over this man, but to have my boss’s boss try and set me up with him.

Seriously, when does that ever happen?

Hmm, what a coincidence, eh? Maybe a little 'been there, done that'?

Abeni said...

Am I correct in assuming Draconian is an old bf? If so yeah blushing is so appropriate:)

Abeni said...

happened to me before - my old boss tried to set me up with a guy... I had to smile sweetly at here and say been there already! Fortunately she took it well, only telling me off for the fact she hadn't known at the time and hence had missed good gossip! And fortunately I'd been the one to dump him which makes it easier...

Hush!

Ohhh, that sucks!! I don't know who Draconian is, but he sounds like he wasn't just any ex...

You poor dear. I had to listen to someone go on and on and on for about a half hour on how great and hot First Love is, not knowing that I'd dated him. It was torture, but it passed.

I don't think you should give a disclosure and have those people all up in your business...it'll die down on its own.

I admitted to knowing him ofcourse, but said a Flat out, No to being set up with him. Hope my red ears did not give things away too much.

Dracs is an ex of sorts...he is pretty much at the beginning of this blog, when we were sort of dating, and he peppers in and out, of the blog, like he does in real life....

Albeni: You are beautiful...everyone check out her pic on her blog...

Thanks all for the hugs and love..
