...and the Zipper Broke!


Claded in a Dorothy Perkins "black scuba zip pencil skirt with a grey spot button shirt alongside my 4 inch nude shoes I left for the office at my usual time 6:55am.

On this specific day my hopes were high on closing some deals and clearing my tight schedules, while attending meetings in between.

I should have been warned. I should have been given a prior alert that the day will not be so good. Better still I should have read my horoscope for the day, although I'm not a big fan of horoscopes.

Well, upon my arrival I decided to check up on my other colleagues who were already in. I met a few of them in the hallway. It was when I stood up to leave my director's office after a brief chit chat on the pending meetings for the day that I realised something was wrong.

My skirt which was tightly closed had opened from the back. I did a quick hand check and realised my zipper had broken. What!! Not in my directors office!!! Not today of all days!!

I sat down immediately and started to laugh in my embarrassed state. I then explained what had happened and diligently asked him to excuse me. Well...he did since he understood the situation

OMG! ! what next? I quickly run out of the office straight to my colleagues office. Unfortunately there was no "bobby pin or needle and thread to save my life.
All this while my two hands were behind me trying to cover the "open outlet" the broken zipper had caused.

It was a fun 10 -12 minutes moment for my colleagues who couldn't help but laugh out loud at  my expense, well I joined them to laugh anyways lol.

I was finally saved by the HR manager who showed up and came to my rescue.
My zipper was later fixed and the days activities continued.

Hmm...your guess is as good as mine, my "broken zipper" was the topic for discussion during lunch breakπŸ˜…πŸ˜…

The New Shoe Syndrome - Lol

The feeling of wearing new shoes to work for me, is synonymous to being served the best part of the seasoned grilled turkey on thanksgiving day. It feels gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooddddd!!!!

These pair of new shoes has redefined my walking this morning. I plan not to sit at my desk today during lunch break. With the least opportunity, I will parade myself through the office from the seventh floor down to the reception in order to display my shoes and my new walk. Yes, new walk! I always have a new walk when I wear new shoes, call me the office "Heidi Klum".

The "ohh nice shoes', "where did you get it", "which brand" comments from my colleagues, clients and visitors is what I'm fantastically awaiting to hear throughout the day whilst I carry on with my duties and humming to Beyonce's "I'm feeling myself" song. Call it multitaskingπŸ˜‰πŸ˜Ž

What new apparel do you have on today?...common share with us.

How to get a Day off from Work

Woman: I can make the boss give me the day off.

Man: And how would you do that?

Woman: "Just wait and see''. She then hangs upside-down from the ceiling.

Boss comes in: What are you doing?

Woman: I'm the light bulb.

Boss: You've been working so much that you've gone crazy. I think you need to take the day off.

The man started to follow her and the boss asks: Where are you going?

Man: I'm going home, too. I can't work …

Secret Santa!

Let's cut the pretense, you didn't like the present you received!! Did you? Lol

Once again, its that time of the year when we have to exchange gifts.
Prior to the day of the gifts exchange, I had to run through the mall searching for that perfect present. All the stores I run through didn't seem to have that one thing that could catch my "big eyes".wheewww! !who even instituted 'Office Secret Santa'! Shoes was number one on the list, followed by clutch then a dress since my Secret Santa was a lady.
Finally, I went for a nice purple clutch, wait! what if she doesn't like the color.....😩 The day finally approached, amidst eating, drinking and making merry the presents were handed out to their respective owners mixed with feelings of suspense and curiosity. Who is getting what, and from who.
Colleagues! Colleagues! ! Colleagues! ! ! how many times did I call you all, guess what i received upon all the running through the mall to get the best gift, lol. …
