I've been lucky enough to enjoy a number of socials thanks to my work over this Christmas and new year period, and the last one was last Thursday, which was the biggest and most prestigious of all these events.

I got to meet in person a number of people I've heard about and contacted via phone and email, but not yet met in the flesh, so that was lovely.  Chief among these was a meeting with a Senior Regional Manager who we will call Kevin for the purposes of this post!

After initial introductions, the conversation went thus ...

Me:         Hi Kevin, I'm Jane - payroll - It's nice to finally meet you at last!
Kevin:     Oh yes, hi Jane, great to meet you at last - it's always nice to put a face to the name.
Me:         Absolutely.  Nice tie, by the way!
Kevin:     Yeah it's good isn't it.  It was my secret Santa present.
Me:         Oh wow, it's nice when someone takes the time to think of something you'll really like, isn't it.
Kevin:     Yeah.  What did you get?
Me:         I got a Star Trek Mug and T-shirt - someone really knows me well!
Kevin:     Star Trek?  Are you a Trekkie?
Me:         Not specifically.  I just love sci-fi and fantasy generally.  I'm a bit of a geek!
Kevin:     Oh God, you're not one of these sad twats that goes to conventions and dresses up are you?
Me:      *grins*
Kevin:   *face slowly drops*
Me:       *grin broadens*
Kevin:    Oh God, you are, aren't you!
Me:        *curtseys* Sad twat at your service!
Kevin:    Oh fucking hell!  What an introduction.  I'm so sorry ...
Me:        Yep, I'm a sad twat and proud of it.  *Grins* Oh, and by the way, I will NEVER let you forget this, just so you know!!!
Kevin:    You've got a real evil streak haven't you.  I like you!
Me:        Good, you can buy me a drink then!
