The lovely Belle and I met some 15 years ago, at work.
When we got engaged and later married, she moved on to other employment. There's a back story to that, too long, too irritating and mundane to go into now.
Belle got laid off from her most recent accounting job a few weeks back.
Yesterday was her first day back with us at the firm. The prohibition against the employment of spouses has mitigated over the years. ( actually it retired with the "head" secretary / busybody some years ago.)
She's working with our spec writer and just happy as a clam to be back. Our spec writer is highly relieved to have the backup. After a few temps with really bad work ethics and the concomitant attitude she was ready to pull her hair out.
I got to work before Belle this morning. I happened to walk past her desk later and winked at her when she looked up.
Brings back some fond memories of the illicit office romance so many years ago.
