Two of a Kind
Gessica had just walked to her work station and set down her belongings when she heard Demi coming her way. “Hey G Honey, what’s going on? Did you have a pleasant weekend?” The words spewing from Demi’s mouth were dripping with such sugary sweetness that it was almost sickening to Gessica’s ears first thing in the morning.
“Nothing. It was good, but must you be so darn bubbly in the morning?! Demi, how many times have I asked you to wait until I get some caffeine in my system before you go spreading your upbeat morning joy?” Gessica’s tone was grouchy; nonetheless, Demi continued unfazed by her friend’s morning zombie mood.
“Look who got up on the wrong side of the bed again. Oh, and G, just to clarify that last question, I don’t pay attention to your rantings!”
“Obviously not,” Gessica grumbled, picking up her lunch bag as she accidentally bumped into Demi while making her way to the kitchen.
“Hey!” Demi shrieked after catching her balance. “It’s okay G, I still love you! Kiss, kiss.” Demi chuckled as she watched Gessica slowly trudge down the hallway. This morning routine of theirs happened pretty much the same way each day.
As Gessica walked back to her cubicle, Demi accepted a package from UPS and handed it to Gessica as she sat back down at her desk. “This is for you, dear.”
Gessica peered down at the label through her newly acquired bifocals. “No, that’s for Bronwyn; looks like the blank CD’s I ordered for her. And, speaking of CD’s, I know you can help me with this question: What is the name of Adam Lambert’s second 2009 hit song? You know the one the radio plays over and over….and over?”
“What do you want from me?” Demi answered shrugging her shoulders.
“The Adam Lambert song. What’s it called?”
“What do you want from me?” Demi answered, gesturing wildly with her hands as she spoke.
“For goodness sake, what I want is for you to answer my freaking question!” Gessica replied, agitation dripping from her voice.
“I answered you!” She voiced.
“No, you did not!” Gessica responded, the pitch in her voice rising louder.
“Yes I did; the name of the song is Whataya Want from Me!”
“Ohhhh,” Gessica sheepishly replied as she realized Demi had been answering her all along.
“Oh my god, you are killing me!” Came Demi’s exasperated reply.
Tami, Bronwyn, and Anna, walked over to Gessica’s desk to investigate the commotion. Eager to know what all the fuss was about, Demi patiently explained what had happened, and the women all burst into a raucous bout of laughter.
“You two are like Tweedle Dee and Twiddle Dumb,” blurted Bronwyn causing another roar of laughter from Tami and Anna. She burst into laughter herself as Gessica and Demi simultaneously rolled their eyes in her direction.
The clock struck 9:00 am as morning visitors began entering the lobby. It was back to work for the five of them, smiling to themselves, thinking that there’s never a dull moment with G’s Charismatic Bunch.
