International Relations

I was working on a big project at work yesterday and was in in major "concentration mode" when my phone rang. It was the H.O.T. British guy that works in my office who needed to ask me a question. I answered his inquiry, but since I had been focused on my project before he called, I was a bit more abrupt than I usually am with men who are that gorgeous. I hung up the phone and went back to my work. Not 5 minutes later he walks into my office with a cup of coffee and says "You sounded like you needed this", smiles and walks out. (I wish I could recreate the accent for you, it really adds something to the whole effect). After the crappy week I've had that small gesture completely turned things around and I was in a better mood all day (and I don't think it was just from the caffeine).

I can't help but think of the wars and conflict that could have been avoided throughout history, if the leaders of the world had just sat down and shared a Starbucks cafe mocha with extra whipped cream.

I was just saying the other day that apparently all it takes for be not to be so grumpy at work is for a cute boy to flirt with me!
They should be distrubted among all businesses by a government agency or something.

Especially if the treat is delivered with a sexy accent!

Haha, how true! It can do wonders to your mood, huh?

I'm so glad that you had this gesture of goodwill after an otherwise so-so week.

OK I admit it, I am a serious sucker for an Austrailian or British accent - I just melt. Really, I think all of those men need to have phone sex lines or something ...HAHA

He sounds dreamy. Any man that pays that much attention and then makes that kind of gesture is one to keep around - even if he is just a good friend....
