Lunchtime conversation

For E, who told me I should put this on my blog.

Background: A few weeks ago at work we had a sort of floor get-together where wine was served. This is not unusual at my job--birthdays or going-away parties are often marked with wine or champagne. Having grown up in a town where drinking alcohol in public was the moral equivalent of shooting heroin, I am still adjusting to this.

E: "We should really do that again, I think it was good for bonding."

R: "What do you suppose their policies on liquor are? I mean, wine is okay, but could we get away with say...tequila?"

C: "Maybe we could make sangria, people tend to forget that there's other things besides wine and fruit in that. What's a good excuse for sangria?"

R: "Ooo! Cinco de Mayo!"

E: "Great idea. When's Cinco de Mayo?"

(silence...and staring)

E: "Er...nevermind. I can't believe I just said that."

I wish I could say something in my defense, but I got nothing.
