The view from the new office

lets just say I get plenty of visual stimulation from where I sit. The copy room and the breakroom are right by my cube and I get to watch all the lovely ladies walk by. Some of them are dressing very attractively since they turned the A/C off.

I work by myself most of the time. I do not want to see me in tight clothes, or naked, or even in a short skirt bent over the copier.

OK, now that we got the disclaimer out of the way...

We recently moved to a new office building. Today, as I am sitting in my office overlooking the rear of the building 'grounds', I see that we have a landscaping at work below. Right below my window, impossible to ignore, is a cute gal, 30ish, brunette, tanned and in nice shape, wearing short shorts and a while tank top. No matter which way she is facing, when she bends over I get the kind of view that reminds me why I love the female gender of our species so much. Today is the first day that I found something I like about this new building.

In all these years, I have never seen gals working on any of the grounds crews of any place I have worked...usually it's the gals I work with ogling over the tanned young fellers...I think turnabout is fair play AND I LIKE IT!

I think this young lady sets a fine example in the standards of dress that this company stands for...so I am drafting a memo concerning the new dress code right now!

Even better when the one criminal justice professor takes the class out for a run that includes about 5 times of going up and down 6 floors worth of steps, and by our office. Ahhh, look at all the fine future policemen ..

Jsharr once again displays the characteristics of the second best kind of buddy a guy can have...we can't discuss the first best kind without getting banned - let's just say it involves getting two of something, then giving one to your buddy. .
