Post Thanksgiving work conversation

It was the Monday after Thanksgiving. Everyone was back to work. I happened upon a manager/administrator walking in the same direction as me. She's in her mid 60's and probably should have retired by now. She deserves retirement but for whatever reason still comes to work periodically to 'fill in/help out, when needed. She's a great woman and I love her. So full of life and so good at what she does.

I asked her a question and the following discussion ensued:

Hi, Ms. Smith, you get your Christmas shopping done?"

"Most but I hadn't done anything since before Thanksgiving. I hosted a big gathering over our house.

"You do the cooking?"

She looked at me. "I said I hosted. I don't cook. My husband and son do the cooking."

I smiled. "You remind me of Katie. She hates to cook."

"So, you cook?" she asked.

"Katie never cooks, so yes, I do the cooking.  I usually cook enough on Sunday to last us for the next several days so she can eat dinner if I have work late. That way she won't have to do anything more than heat something up in the microwave."

"That's good planning on your part."

"Yeah, it's what she wants so that's what I do. The problem is that this week we were gone so there's nothing in the fridge to eat. Before I asked her that evening if she ate anything for dinner, I knew her answer before I even asked."

"What's that?"

"I asked if she had dinner and she told me she did. When I asked what, she told me she had cereal. That's how bad she hates to cook."

Ms. Smith smiled. "She sounds like we are two peas from the same pod. I hate to cook just as much as she does."

And at that point, we parted ways.

  1. What a fun post! It never ceases to amaze me how by being a little friendly, you can make such interesting connections. For us we share the cooking responsibilities and I probably do 60%. Thank for posting life.

  2. I’m Hers,
    Glad to be back commenting and I think this blog entry is interesting. You might very well have uncovered a Female Led Relationship with the woman coworker. In a work place environment she may not release any more details in any future conversations, but you never know. The only FLR we ever learned about is a friend’s. My wife had reconnected with a woman she attended college with and later worked for until the woman had moved away. She lived in another state and my wife and the woman had lost contact except for exchanging greeting cards. The woman had married and when her husband passed away she moved back to our area because she had family here. When my wife and her friend reconnected my wife learned, over a period of time, that her friend’s husband was submissive to her. She missed him a lot. He willingly did much of the domestic chores like cooking, shopping and cleaning. He deferred to her on the big decisions and finances. No intimate or sexual details were discussed but my wife explained what she had learned and asked me whether I had any objection to her mentioning anything about our marriage. At this point in my life many of our friends must suspect that at the very least my wife is the boss and I told my wife I was fine with it. My wife told her saying our marriage is happier and has fewer disagreements and problems in general. The woman is seeing an older man in the area, but he is not submissive. There is a kinky aspect to be outed, though my wife decided she would not relate private intimate information to the woman. My wearing of a metal chastity cage and French Maid outfits (added to have some fun) in private is one thing, but my wife feels people knowing that can be a problem. I told my wife the sight of a bald man wearing a short maid outfit might scare her friend away.
