Courage prevails

This happened this morning as I was on my way to the beverage cooler. I didn't know the woman's name until today, though I had seen her several times.

Cassie: (smiles and waves)
Me: (smiles and nods)

I enter the kitchen and retrieve my beverages, and she enters as I am leaving...

Cassie: Hi! I've... (nervously) been trying to gather the courage to ask you...
Me: (surprised)
Cassie: ...can... I ride your Segway sometime? Everyone wants to.
Me: Oh. Yeah, sure.

Of course, I had something else in mind, but that works too.

Cassie: No.

So what exactly is a beverage cooler?

Travis said...

A beverage cooler is what I call the large glass-front refrigerators that carry the vast array of beverages available to employees.
