But then the new lady today won the priiiiize. She was talking to the other ladies, back in the accounting cubicles about being hot. There were the typical menopause jokes, but then she started talking about how the guys in the R2 and C3PO costumes got so hot that they would pass out so they had to add cooling devices to their costumes. She was hesitant at first, acting all coy, like she didn't know the name of the droids, but when they started laughing at the comparison, she started to roll with it and started talking about special effects and how Star Wars was still awesome even now and ... and... she started to lose them then, but I had to go by and give her a verbal high five for relating Star Wars to hot flashes.
And then it all reminded me of a co-worker at a former job. We were only together for a few months, but in that time, we giggled, fangirled, flailed and geeked a life time's worth.
