Honey Bears

31 Jan

I’m pretty sure my coworker just witnessed me in the office kitchen saying “Hello, honey bears!” to the cute, plastic, honey-filled faces that looked up at me from the Fresh Direct delivery box. I was just welcoming them into the kitchen supply cabinet… and then realized there was a decidedly human presence behind me as my coworker (How long was he there? Why didn’t I hear him walk in? Is he a ninja? Did it have to be the hot coworker?) filled up his water bottle at the Poland Spring dispenser. I continued to put groceries away. He got his water and left. And I will always wonder if he heard me welcoming our new, sweet friends.

Honey bears deserve polite greetings, too.
