I don't remember if I've blogged about my friend Alex before. He's a really cool staff in my office that everyone seems to know, even if they've never worked with him. Like me. I've never worked directly with him, and sadly, don't think my schedule will allow me to in the future. He's super hilarious and always makes those comments that are borderline funny and OMG-WTF-I-can't-believe-you-just-said-that-at-work.
Let me briefly set up the premise before I share our conversation. We're chatting online, talking about people at work who we consider true friends, or just coworkers, and nothing more. He jokes with me, saying I'm just a coworker, not a friend. I told him that considering he knows a lot of personal stuff about me I wouldn't normally share with anyone, and we haven't even worked together, I think of him as a friend.
Me: "I wouldn't have told you all that stuff about me after Monday's dance lesson if I didn't think of you as a good friend." (We're taking swing dancing classes in case you're wondering)
Alex: "haha, yea...well i feel good that you told me...i guess that means that you trust me...even though I told people that we danced...VERTICALLY!!!"
Me: "Vertically? Huh? I don't get it." (I'm thinking maybe he said that on purpose?)
Alex: "What kind of 'dance moves' would one do while being vertical...?"
Alex: "Come on.... you got this...."
*snort*.....I guess he didn't say it on purpose
*pause* Me: "I think you mean horizontally."
Alex: "You are correct my friend...wow, that ruins the whole joke."
Me: "Yah... and you had it in all caps too."
I'm tellin ya. Alex is awesome. Even if he tells people we did the vertical mambo.

Speakin of dancing... Alex sent me this video this morning. I normally don't laugh at this kind of stuff, but most people think this type of thing is funny. So here ya go. If you enjoy it, great.. Daphne showed it to you... if not... it's Alex, not me.
