On Fridays our agency usually takes a break in the late afternoon to have a drink and socialize in the myriad of typically ad agency places to socialize here in our office. People play Sonic on our XBox, they sit in the diner-like booths in the kitchen, they shoot rubber bands from the offices near the corners of hallways or they, like The Pretty AE and I did, sit on the couches and chat.
In this case, while drinking Stoli O and Diet 7UP.
I was sitting there enjoying my drink while The Pretty AE prattled on in the endearing way of hers…when I realized that the drink was really strong. The Pretty AE told me that it was about 75% vodka.
That is a problem.
Or, rather, the fact that it took me until I was almost finished with the drink to realize it was 75% vodka is the problem. Though, on the plus side, I felt positively like a Mad Man with my stiff drink in the office while talking to a pretty girl.
It would be completely Mad Men if only I could get her to sleep with me…
