Highlight of my day

Setting: The kitchen at my office
Me: Heating up a Lean Cuisine for dinner
R (male co-worker): Getting ice for his water

Idle chit-chat about the glories of frozen dinners — making note of which ones are the most flavorful and those that taste like cardboard.

Then, the good stuff:

R: You've lost about 10 or 15 pounds, haven't you?
Me (stunned): Um ... Yes, I have!
R: My wife has lost about 15 pounds, so I kind of know how to judge these things lately.
Me: Well, thanks for noticing!

It's the little things that keep me smiling. This was definitely one of 'em.
