My office has been doing a Secret Pal program the last week, where those who participate exchange small gifts, secretly, with someone else in the office. There will be a lunch tomorrow, where we'll find out who our Secret Pals are.
Yesterday, I came back to my desk and found a little gift box and opened it up. I found a nice pair of work out socks, the sort that wick away your perspiration, and I thought, huh, it's someone who has been hearing me talk all the time about working out. Suddenly I began to giggle.
"What is it?" asked Nola, the secretary at the next desk.
I held up the socks with a grin.
"Harry Potter . . . has given Dobby socks!" I said in a high squeaky voice, and I widened my eyes maniacally. "Dobby is FREE!!!"
Nola, who has also read read the books, collapsed on the desk, laughing.
