But I feel a bit discombobulated mostly by the gimlet eye of my bosses’ boss who is not gay (he’s married with kids) but who feels the same sort of compulsion to look at me that I feel towards a buxom girl. He travels by my cube at least five times a day and has clever and self-aware eyes that he holds in a perpetual half-squint as if out of vanity. I can see him out of the corner of my eye looking at me as he passes by. Don't think I don't know you're looking, I think...So...how do you know he's not gay?
He (TS) also gets a massage. The corporate world's no doubt a wonderful thing; I just don't understand it.

VICTOR/VICTORIA.........William/Wilhemina, whatever. It came in the mail addressed to me. Not to the "Resident" at such and such address - or to the wife, or one of the daughters - but to me:
YOU'LL THINK IT'S CUSTOM MADE
NEW! BIOFIT UPLIFT
Victoria's Secret introduces a bra that feels custom-made just for you. Just for your shape, just for your cup size...

HI THERE!I had to sign up for a Myspace account, not because I wanted one but to view a friend's page. Signing up got me a page too. I didn't want one but that's what happens. It's a nothing page, as in there's nothing on it and never will be. But, magnet that I am, I have a new "friend" already. I open my email the other day and it says: You've got a new message from Gina on MySpace! Click here to read...
Oh. Gina. Yeah, there had to be one somewhere along the line. I click. There's Gina. Kind of cute. Kind of young. Enough to be my daughter. Granddaughter...
Hello good-looking!Well, she had the right guy. I must have met her somewhere. Somewhere staid and proper, of course.
I'm a cute single woman looking for a bit of friendly fun. I'm smart, adventurous and outgoing. I also love singing karaoke and going out to bars. I hope you're still single or at least available for to meet a great woman. I won't disappoint. If interested, get back to me, but dont reply directly to the message. I'm actually using my friend's account. I wasn't sure I wanted to do the whole online hook-up thing. So please e-mail me directly at this address: hugznkises_4u@yahoo.
Thanks for your time! see ya'
Dear Gina, this is a disappointment. I don't think I meet any of the qualifications. Well, I am smart in my own opinion, and I used to be adventurous and outgoing, but now I like books and the rigors of composition while it's obvious you don't. I do like singing, but I don't know how you'd sing something that sounds like a Japanese soup. I also used to be single but am now its opposite, if you get my drift. I've sworn to some woman that I would love, honor and cherish her till death do me in, and I hope the same for you some day, although it looks like you might be getting off on the wrong foot. Among other things. Since you probably don't read a lot (not the right stuff anyway), I assume you watch plenty of television and ought to be well aware of the dangers in hooking up online. I probably better sign off now since that woman I'm sworn to is real jealous of her territory and I feel guilty even writing this. So with all best wishes for, oh, I don't know...What do I wish for someone like you? I just hope you get knocked off your ass on the way to Damascus. Not quite truly yours, etc.And if any of you reading this respond to that email address she gave, you're degenerate.
