Early one morning at work…
A co-worker and I were discussing why one of our Supervisors had reserved the conference room.
Actually, it was more like guessing.
When the conference room is reserved, the purpose of its use is not always clear. Sometimes the room is only reserved by name and the time period due to confidentiality – personnel issues, interviews, etc.
We were wondering if it was a confidential thing, a meeting, or something else.
Given our similar sense of humor, we joked about simply making something up – guessing at its finest.
I decided to be hoity-toity and call it suppositioning.
Co-worker responded with…
“Stop using big words so early in the morning.”
It was 7:45 am. Given that I am usually up by 5:15 am on work days, it felt more like mid morning, but whatever.
I responded with…
“It’s better than mathing early in the morning!”
Well, no matter. We both agreed about the mathing and went about our business.
And I learned not to use ten-cent words with my co-worker until at least 10:00 am.
