The Company’s Sexy Ink

I am not sure if you have all seen the news about David Letterman. In a nutshell, Ole’ Dave was dipping his pen in the company ink, repeatedly, for years.  I watched him reveal the story about a man attempting to extort money to keep the dirty secrets on the air.  It was extremely odd because the audience was laughing as he was recounting the ordeal, weaving in humor whenever he could.

I suppose it can be a cautionary tale about dating and sleeping with co-workers.  I doubt that someone with his public image will ever have true remorse about what he did.  I just wonder about the women that were involved.

When you work with people you tend to reach a level of comfort. If you don’t have boundaries, it would be easy to  cross the line and give in to the attraction you feel. It seems as if today’s society is more accepting of workplace romances. I know couples who openly date at work and it doesn’t seem to be problematic for them.

Have you ever dated a co-worker? Was it  a good experience or a nightmare?

If someone new started working in your company, would you pursue things if you were attracted to them right away?

Do you think there are ways to make dating a co-worker actually work for you? How do you avoid the drama in the office? What happens if the relationship doesn’t work out?

What do you think of Letterman’s revelation? How do you think he has handled the “scandal” of dipping his pen in the company ink?

Happy Wednesday!

His kisses taste like butterscotch.
His eyes are the color of melted chocolate.
His skin is cocoa butter smooth.
He makes me tremble with delight as he plants kisses down my spine.

@Raqi-thumbs down on the lingerie football, not sexy at all, can’t mix sex with evrything.

just like b4 topic is done by noon, then everybody just talk ish…cool

on the afraid of success topic…i’m not sure that is the case for most, but to be successful you have go balls to the wall, many if not most find a way to let life catch’em with the balls out, they not quite on the wall yet and then competing priorities takeover. Dream stays alive, but that real life stuff is going on right now.

Not now, but right now (said in grandpa’s old southern accent)

By touching my soul, he touches my body in ways that I’ve never known it could be touched.
My fountain flows with the slightest touch of his hand and the faintest brush of his lips.
I close my eyes and fall into his lake of promises.

I look with new eyes at the picture his words paint before me.
When I would retreat behind the barriers set to protect me from vulnerability,
He knocks down walls and holds my hand and lets me see into his soul.

Together, we sit on the floor of my soul,
Turning our faces to the sun,
Dreaming dreams of a shared future
And I am no longer dying on the inside.

Your Love has me Jonesin’
And it’s my heart that you’re owning
When you softly whisper my name.
I know this ish is real
Cause it’s too good what I feel
And nobody’s playing any games.
So I keep my head to the sky
No longer wondering why
Real love would not visit my heart.
God sent me a man
Who put me in his plan
And all I have to do is my part.

I met my husband at work. We dated discretely for almost one year. We decided to get married and notified the appropriate personnel. That’s when all heck broke loose. I was alienated from other coworkers; not invited to parties; and one employee even told me that I couldn’t be trusted because I kept my relationship a secret. My time at that company has ended.

BTW- Neither one of us was a manager or reported to the same management team. I guess he legally dipped his ink!
