The "mighty" Coffee Machine Spout lol

It was awkward, really awkward when my cup of coffee had to be searched for the missing "spout".

Lets rewind to what led to that, lol. So this colleague and I were representing the company at one of the biggest oil and gas conferences in the region. It is one of the high profile conferences that witnesses the top oil and gas executives and stakeholders in the industry.

As occasion demands, there is always a brief networking and breakfast time. After exchanging pleasantries and business cards, I headed to the coffee machine to serve myself a cup of hot steaming coffee.


I forced out my mug which had gotten stuck on the machine after brewing. Maybe the force I was using to pull the coffee mug was equal to a tonardo because lo and behold the spout of the nozzle ended up falling into my coffee. Omg!!! what should I do. I quickly checked around for a solution. Yes the tea spoons, or even tea sticks!! but no, none was in sight at that particular time.

I guess the hotel needs to restructure their service delivery. What next...? I started feeing uncomfortable because anyone could walk to the coffee machine at any time. Dipping my fingers to grab it was was never an option. Lol not when there were high profiled persons in attendance.

It would have been so embarrassing should anyone see me in such act. So, I just pretended nothing had happened and walked away from the coffee machine with the spout still in my coffee. After two sips, there approached two battlers asking me to hand over my cup of coffee. Obviously I had to pretend I didn't know what was happening,...lol

They said since I was the last person to leave the machine before the spout went missing I was then the first "Suspect" hehe. I gently handed my cup to them and they came back later with a new cup of coffee with smiles on their faces..."we found it, it was in your coffee, here's a new cup for you" they said.

I acted all surprised and kept asking how it got in there, then i gently walked away from the scene and sworn never to go near that coffee machine until the conference was over. Thank goodness only 3 out of the 400 executives who were present witnessed the scene.

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 multitasking😉😎

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. …
