At A Lawyerly Office Birthday Party

Big Boss (in his Informative Voice): You need to get The Rabbit.

Me(snorting so hard chocolate cake comes out my nose): Excuse me?

Big Boss (trying to be patient while he cultures me): You know, the one that opens wine bottles.

Me (kissing my dreams of retiring thanks to a sexual harassment lawsuit goodbye): Ohhhhhh, that Rabbit!

    These confusions happen…it is quite natural.

    Especially when one of the parties has a gutter mind…

    This is similar to me saying to a co-worker today (about his new laptop) to stop bragging about his equipment… Sigh, I love workplace inappropriateness!

    It appeals to the naughty in me.

    I had a convo with B’s dad this weekend all about the second kind of Rabbit, and inside my mind I was totally giggling like a 12 year old.

    Sounds like you gave Good Parent.

    I must confess that I had to rely on the the Urban Dictionary to translate this for me.

    oh. OH!

    How about I give you Sex and The City for Christmas? It brought The Rabbit to the attention of the masses.

    Oh, my gosh, if my boss were to say that? I’d turn so red…

    Too funny!

    It really was a special moment.

    I bet you could use the lawyerly skills to convince a jury somewhere he really meant the one that doesn’t open wine bottles. They even kinda look the same if you step back and squint…

    Yeah, but the wine one doesn’t vibrate!

    My boss actually called me “buns” once and I couldn’t hide my red-faced embarassment. He realized his error he apologized profusely. In his defense, he called me buns as a shortened version of bunny which, isn’t much better. Don’t worry kids–this isn’t sexual harrassment. He actually saw a picture of me with bunny ears from a easter bar crawl I participated in and therefore a nickname emerged.

    Funny that a dildo and a wine opener share a name. πŸ™‚

    I snicker every time I see those stupid “Magic Bullet” appliances at Kohls. I’m like, that is not the magic I’m looking for. πŸ˜€
