Let me set the stage for you:

An office.

A beautiful young woman, let's call her... Jane... is walking towards the out-going mail box, sheaf of out-going mail in hand.

A nameless co-worker rounds the corner, whilst initiating what looks to be a massive sneeze.

At the last second, the nameless co-worker, realizes Jane's proximity (too close for comfort) and cuts sneeze off (quite a considerate, and no easy thing to do! I'm sure you'll agree.)

Nameless co-worker: (disappointed) Aw. You made me lose my sneeze!

Jane: (confused while feeling grateful for the lack of sneezage in my..oops, I mean her... general direction) I'm sorry... is this a bad thing?

Nameless co-worker: (indignant) Yes. I don't like to lose a sneeze once it's started! (walks off slightly miffed.)

Jane: (standing at the out-going mail box, staring bewildered after her nameless coworker) Okaaaaaaaaay....

to self- Really... is it THAT big of a deal? Really?

Jane shakes her head, deposits her outgoing mail in the outgoing mailbox, walks back to her desk -taking care to give her co-worker a wide berth and thereby eliminate the need for 'losing' any more sneezes- and returns to her incredibly productive day.

Well you know they say sneezing is like 1/10 of an orgasm or something!

But do I... I mean Jane... Does Jane really need to be involved in that? I mean, this is the office! Why should she have to worry about people's fractional orgasims at the office??

Maybe (giggle) she only gets them (giggle) through her sneezes, and (giggle)you cost her half of her (giggle) daily orgasm quota.

That's a good point, T... wow... I I'll tell Jane that she should go apologize and then buy nameless coworker a bag of feathers or dustmites or cat hair or something... things could get nasty around there if she doesn't...
