There's a new vending machine at work! It's similar to the one above but instead of having 3 holes at the bottom for the drinks to come out of there's just one hole in the far right corner. And (here's the neatest part) there's this automated arm thing that comes up, gently snatches your drink and then delivers it to the hole it comes out of. It doesn't shake your drink! And it's fun to watch! I was so stunned at this technical marvel that I sprinted back to my workstation to tell everyone about it. If I'd have had another dollar I'd have bought another drink just to watch that little arm thing carry it to where it needed to be. They probably have these things everywhere but it was the first time I'd seen one. This was the highlight of yesterday's work day.

After sharing my vending machine find, I asked the lady I sit by if her baby smelled good "fresh from the chute" and she said it did. Then she scooched her chair just a little farther away from me.

If you want a nice Valentine's Day read, go check out Old Old Lady of the Hills. She has a fine post up about her first love.

Not everything that comes out of that chute smells good. I don't understand why babies would be different.

I would have paid money to see you ask her that question. Money that you could have then used in the spanking new vending machine.

Joey Polanski - They have piggy banks that do that?! I need one of those. I might start saving money. Might. Mites are on a chicken's ass too.

Anne Arkham - Maybe it has something to do with the amniotic fluid? My friend said they keep that smell til they get to be around 2 and start to sweat.

Mike - After I said it, I thought it should have been phrased in a more delicate manner. But it was too late then. The people I work with are getting to experience the "real" me in small doses.

Those machines jam and break down a lot so I'd get something every day while its still working.

What did your co-worker think of the phrase "fresh from the chute"?

Chickie said...

MCB - Thanks for the warning about the machines. I'll be sure to enjoy it while I can!

Co-worker looked at me kinda funny but once she figured out what I was talking about she laughed. And she did agree with me that you might think that babies would stink but that they really don't.
