Beakerkin goes West Indian

Never let it be said that the Beak is not a man of his word. I lost a bet and had to wear West Indian attire on casual Friday. One of my close friends got promoted to supervisor and they insisted I join them for a night of dancing.

You can guess who picked up the check. The modest weight loss and new wardrobe has made me more popular at work. Unlike VT where I kept apart from my coworkers I will take lunch with my peers. I felt more or a distance from the Vermonters than I do with fellow NYC types even if we are of different races or ethnicities.

I would not describe myself as a bon vivant.

Beak,

Even more chick magnetism! Lose a few pounds, and they'll come flocking.

Did you dance your feet off?

I did a few dances with my friend, but not much else.

So how would you describe yourself?

I am more of a homebody. However, in VT I was careful not to mix with the locals.

Bloggers as humans, the other side of the keyboard. Hmm, that would be a good name for a blog. No, I'm not starting another one.
