I am a Southern Baptist. Been one all my life. I was born Southern Baptist, raised Southern Baptist, and unlike my siblings, I've remained Southern Baptist.
As a good Southern Baptist, I am a teetotaler. Barring the occasional bender with NyQuil, I've never had an alcoholic drink. I do, however, have a thing for -- of all things-- wine glasses.
I love 'em. I love the way they look. I love the way they are shaped. I love the way they feel in my hands. So, when I saw a couple on clearance, I just had to get them.
That is Sprite in that glass. Well, technically, it's the store brand version of Diet 7-Up, but it's the same thing. Technically...
Sometimes at work, I get accused of having an attitude. I won't say who is accusing me of that *cough*GroupLeaderFernando*cough*, but suffice it to say, I sometimes get accused of having an attitude.
Today, I decided I would solve that problem. I stuck a label on my jelly bean jar and took it to work with me.
"That ought to work," Group Leader Fernando said.
When I showed them to The Other Rod -- Not To Be Confused With Former Group Leader Rod-- he said, "I need all of those!" Parts Stager Edna read the label, laughed, and walked away saying, "I love this girl."
Apparently, they work, and not just on me. Fernando was getting a bit of an attitude, so I picked up my jar, and without a word, poured some into his hand. He stopped grumping and walked away, munching on jelly beans.
It was a rough day. It must have been. He came back for more.
