A few weeks ago my engineer friend and I were blowing off some steam at the office after hours when he picked up my football shaped stress ball (a gift in a bag during a work event, I'd never buy myself a stress ball on purpose) and said, "Get up."
He and I started to toss the ball around. Impressed by cannon of an arm he said, "I didn't know you could throw!"
"Well don't treat me like a girl who's afraid of the ball!" I shrieked. "Bring the thunder!"
He then wiped the ball at me. I was poised for the catch but took my eye off the ball for a second and SMACK! It hit me right in the face directly under my right eye.
"Oh. My God!" My friend ran towards me to see if I was Ok. While my eyes watered I realized that I hadn't had my lip waxed in about a month.
Not wanting to expose my stache, I covered my mouth and said, "No no. I'm ok! Really. I'm OK. Seriously don't come any closer!"
"Are you sure?? I'm really sorry."
"No no not your fault," (hand still over mouth). "Really." I picked up the ball and said, "Go long!"
I got my lip waxed that evening. A word to the wise ladies, keep your lip wax fresh because you never know when balls will be flying at your face.
