Italian Ice

Here is a perfect example of emotions gone awry:  Due to the horrendous heat of late, our HR person just brought around Italian Ice for everyone in the building.  She came over to my cube and I chose my preferred flavor.  "What's the occassion?" I asked.

"Hottest day of the year!" She answered and I laughed.  Ha ha ha.  (What else is there to talk about in an office but the weather?  Thank goodness for extremely hot days and blizzards.)

I brought my Ice back to my desk and looked at it.  How sweet, I thought.  I'm so excited to eat it.  And then I burst into tears. 

Like I said, emotions gone awry.
