¿QuĂ© hay de las bebidas de esta noche?

Not sure what to make of this email. Is Rosetta Stone suggesting I should expand my dating pool to non-english speakers? Or are they implying I should give up entirely on the english speaking population? Or perhaps they're saying I should play the role of foreigner looking for green card?

Watercooler Talk

Me: I like getting on the phone and flirting with the paralegals.
Co-Worker: Ugh... every time you get on a call with a girl I have to put my headphones on.
Me:  Is it that obvious when I'm on the phone with a girl?
Co-Worker:  Yes, and it's disturbing, hence the headphones.

Rhetorical Question

"So WG asked me to get drinks with some of her former co-workers tonight.  I said I'd love to but better take a rain check.  Did I play that right?"

Water Cooler Talk

Co-worker:  Hey, I've still got some of your exotic beer.
Me:  It's from Colorado.
Co-worker:  That's exotic to me.
Me:  You Texans.

Fix Everything

Someone I was romantically interested in expressed the oft said sentiment that she should let herself go physically in the hopes of finding someone interested in her for the right reasons - I do realize a certain level of vanity is implied.

I don't think she was all that serious but it led me to ask her if she thought it was better for someone to be interested in someone for who they are or what they could become.  She went with both.

Water Cooler Talk

Co-Worker:  Did you buy the rice cooker already?
Me:  No.
Co-Worker:  Why not?  Need to work more overtime?
Me:  Co-worker #2 talked me out of it.
Co-Worker:  Did he really?
Me:  Yup, so no perfectly cooked rice for me.
Co-Worker:  Are you going to buy a car instead?

Water Cooler Talk

Co-worker:  Where did you have lunch?
Me [said with absolutely no pretense in making it sound authentic]: Casa Milagro.
Co-worker [with full on accent and professionally rolled r's]: Casa Milagro.
Me[concedingly said]: Yeah, it sounds better when you say it.  Wait... let me give it a try. [grabs Chinese menu from desk and reads from]  Orange chicken.  Sounds better when an asian says it?
Co-worker:  Yeah, it really does!
