As I was getting ready to get into the car and drive to work (yes, I realize I only live 3 blocks from work, but when it's 30 degrees below freezing those 3 blocks feel like 3000!), I thought I should just walk. Already running a little late, I changed back into my boots and headed out the door. It wasn't until it was time to leave work that I realized just how glad I was that I actually had walked. We received about 3 inches of snow during the work day, the parking lot was totally backed up and the roads were super slippery. Sure, my walk home was a little chilly, but I made it home in one piece (and I didn't have to scrape ice off my windshields either)!!
My coworker and I were talking about how the crotch of certain pairs of pants make a snapping sound when we walk (After receiving many questioning looks from friends and family when I originally expressed concern/frustration to them that my pants made a snapping sound when I walked, I looked it up online to prove it was a real thing and found that urbandictionary.com calls it "cracklin' crotch"--LOL). I got up to show her that the pair I wore today did said snapping. As I sat back down she said, "I like those pants on you. I think they're cute."
My other coworker thought she'd be funny and said, "Well, I don't. I think they're ugly."
So I jokingly replied, "Oh, yeah? Well, I think YOU'RE ugly!"
We all started laughing.
We sounded like a bunch of five-year-olds!
