Scenes from my day #1

(Scene:  Standing in the break room, waiting for my lunch to finish cooking in the microwave.  FEMALE CO-WORKER points out the window where a light snow is falling against a bright blue sky. The sun overhead catches the new snow, giving it a sparkling effect as it floats to the ground.)

FEMALE CO-WORKER:  It looks like someone’s throwing fairy dust!

(Suddenly, the snowfall increases dramatically and as the sun glints off, the rapid twinkling almost looks like a transporter effect from STAR TREK.)

ME: Now it looks like someone’s on the roof putting fairies through a wood chipper.

(FEMALE CO-WORKER stares at me for five full seconds before vacating the break room without another word.)
