The Axe

He walked through the cubicles like he owned them.  Marie shifted at her desk and typed a message in her email.

Hi Sheri!

Guess who is wandering around again?  Your favorite person.  Be warned he is acting as smug as ever.  And I think his hubris is oozing today.  I KNOW he was in the Axe body spray again, PU!  Keep your eyes down and you should be safe.



Marie when back to her spreadsheet and in about 3 minutes her email notification popped up.

Signs, Signs, Everywhere Signs

You talk to her everyday

You even tell her she looks nice

But then you walk on

You’re tired of the dating scene

But you don’t want to be alone

It is time for you to open your eyes

You’re missing what is right in front of you

She smiles as soon as you walk in

She blushes when you talk to her

And she always walks the long way around the office

Just so she can go by your desk

If you can’t see the signs

That she really cares for you

Maybe you should be

Destined to be alone
