Harriet Turbleton was her name. She had always been a bit frosty, and cold-eyes, but there was that office Christmas party in 2017.
Let's just say, Harriet was uncorked that night, and did indeed let her hair down...among other things.
It was the consequence of an extra shot of tequila. She is usually far from being a party girl, but the air she breathed that night, somehow, over took her senses.
Harriet performed her own musical/dance number. It was sung in a whole new octave of Patti Labelle's, "Voulez Vous Coucher Avec Moi Ce Soir", and on top of the center table.
The office crew enthusiastically chanted, "More, more!", and renamed her "Cha-Cha Harry". She obliged, and sang two encores.
Neither cameras, nor videos were permitted at this party due to the Christmas party of 2009, so there was no hard evidence of the "other" Harriet that night. However, every year at this time there is lengthy reminiscing in whispers, of the 2017 office party, and Harriet, a.k.a. "Cha-Cha Harry," and her extra shot of tequila.
His name is TaBaScO, but his friends call him “Tab”.
He’s handsome. To put it simply, he’s hot, red hot. This makes him a bit popular in town.
Unfortunately, Tab takes advantage of this, and has a bit of a reputation. It’s sad, but true, he has burned a few.
I’m not sure if you would consider it good, or bad, but Tabasco definitely adds a little spice to life.
BoNNiE AbTruSe is described as demure. Her voice is soft, along with the color of her skin, and she has tiny, pouty lips.
Because of this, you would think she would dress in neutral beige, or a subdued grey to match her low-key personality. However, this was not the case. Bonnie’s clothing selection flounced with personality. The colors vibrated lime-green, banana-yellow, and an exuberant tangerine-orange.
It made you ponder, if perhaps, there is a side to Bonnie wanting to escape her neutral self, but too timid to take the plunge. Would she hang glide over a deep sea, drink cocktails with umbrellas until sun-up? Of course, her feet would be dangling from a tree swing, parading her two-toned crimson polish with skeleton head decals.
Then again, maybe that’s what we would imagine for her. Perhaps she is happiest working 9-5 and retrieving to her condo. There, she engulfs herself in her Celine Dion tribute comforter on her tan sofa. By her side, is her beagle, June Alice, sharing her leftover pizza, and watching reruns on the Hallmark channel.
That, in a nutshell, is Bonnie’s very comfortable, beige-colored life. But, of course, it is accented with tropical-colored clothes, which are her adventure.
MaRtHa JuNe'S TiLteD CaKe
Martha June's cakes always had a slight tilt to them. Regardless of the tilt, she entered the bake-off each year.
Her cakes, truly, were the best in her town, or state, for that matter, but there were no points given for their slight tilt. Because of this, she never received the prized tulip bouquet, or the free dinner at Monty's diner.
This disappointed Martha immensely. She just couldn't make a tilt-less cake.
Then, one day, she asked herself why she continued to make those crazy cakes?!
Well, after a chat with herself, Martha June surmised it was for the joy of baking them, and for the smiles received.
Indeed, smiles stretched across every judge's face as they tasted her cakes. This made Martha June's heart do the hula.
And so, she has left her tilted frustration behind. Now, she happily creates her leaning cakes, and never misses the bake-off.
We also believe that Martha June is confident, that one year, her cakes will be judged not by their appearance, but for the deliciousness found inside.
