My boss, Hans, and Sven are having a cold beer in our office. It’s a very hot afternoon.

Sven: “I normally apply bottles orally.”

Lots of laughter.

Boss: “Freudian slip if I ever heard one.”

Sven: “Shit, I didn’t mean that.”

Me: “And you do realize this is gonna haunt you for a while?”

Boss: “You should see Gaby for some cream then.”

A pause.

Me: “Actually, you should ask Petra for some cream.”

Paul: “I was thinking the exact same thing and I just didn’t want to say it.”

Sven: “Oh, screw you all.”
