Yesterday, the reality that I am the subject of men’s gossip (what's the term?) had become readily apparent. As I passed a gentleman of a solid professional demeanor with a moderately roughneck exterior, he commented on my freshly prepared lunch.

While I'm still debating if this is blog -worthy, I am sitting at home alone on Thanksgiving, so I might as well do something with it.
