ME: [Walking into the copy room at work and seeing a co-worker I haven't seen in a few weeks] Oh, hi J.
CO-WORKER J: [smiles] Oh, hey.
ME: How're you today?
CO-WORKER J: Good. You?
ME: I'm good.
CO-WORKER J: [looks more closely at me... then, sotto voce] Have you lost weight?
ME: Yup. 14 pounds. That's the equivalent of 56 sticks of butter!
CO-WORKER J: [laughing] I like that. I'll have to remember it. Well, you look really good.
ME: Thanks! [leaves copy room...floating on air]
