February 13, 2011
I bumped into Cindy in the elevator while heading out for a well-deserved coffee break.

"Hey!" she said, "I hear you're pretty busy these days!"

"Yeah, I really am..."

"Isn't it so dry in our office?" she continued. "My legs are like lizard skin. I mean, seriously, it's like touching an actual lizard!!!"

Under the rules of conversational reciprocity, I was now under pressure to reveal something disgusting and horrible about myself.

"Yeah," I said, "my hands are pretty dry, too."

Cindy realized I wasn't playing her game, and wouldn't talk to me for the rest of the day.
