i’m sitting with female co-workers, posing the following question.
me: “so, my husband says that sometime near the end of their training, they want all the rookie firefighters to invite their spouses out to this luncheon thing – sort of a meet and greet the city’s top execs, marshals and whatever of the department. what exactly do i wear to one of these things?”
co-worker #1: “you’ll be surrounded by hot firefighters?”
co-worker #2: “you’ll want to wear something sexy, then.”
co-worker #3: “that’s right! go out and buy something new – something really, really hot!”
me: “umm… you do realize my husband will be there.”
co-workers #1 and 2: “so what?!? just do it!”
co-worker #2: “you know, if there’s any fundraising event or whatever, i’ll be there. for all of them.”
co-worker #3: “can i come to this luncheon?”
me: “you guys are no help at all.”
seriously – what is it with firefighters? you can take a normal, average guy, put him in firefighter gear and *WHAM*! instant attraction!
not too different from those axe commercials.
