So I decided to create a category of “That’s so “Nicole”” to remind myself of all the silly things I’ve said. Nothing beats laughing about yourself.

Scene: At my office pantry. Analyst L from L&T walks in.

Me: Hi L, how are you?

L: Good, my wife just gave birth to a boy last week.

Me: Oh that’s great! What’s his name?

L: Luke.

Me: Oh? You like Starwars?


L: My mum likes the name. We named him after the Saint.


That’s all folks.
