asian cucumber salad

The said recipe was just about 1 page long, which I joyfully printed out at work, because my home printer ran out of toner and I'm short of funds to replace it.

I forgot all about picking up the damn recipe from the printer.

Big mistake.

Our office had the audit committee come over and people were scurrying around putting folders together and making copies of things. I had a sinking feeling that my recipe was in one or two or all the folders.

Everyone said they did not take anything from the printer that wasn't theirs. I had this vision of all these serious accountants sitting around the conference room, flipping through their serious documents and then - BOOM - they see this recipe for asian cucumber salad mixed into the batch.

I was starting to sweat.

I ran to the folders and much to my horror saw the recipe at the back of each folder. I could have said this was a bonus for all the hard work they did, if I was approached by anyone. Fortunately, I had 1/2 hour to pull my recipe from all those folders.

Ten minutes before the meeting, a secretary of one of the senior people here comes down to me.

"Is this yours?" she asks.

I look at it. It's my recipe.

"How did it get to you?" I ask innocently.

"It was in B.'s materials for the meeting, which she took up to her office as soon as they made the folders. She just wants to make sure no one else will get this in their material."

"Don't worry. I'm SURE they don't have recipes in their folders."

And that recipe sho' better be worth it.

I'd envisioned a different ending, where they all discovered this amazing recipe, went home and tried it and all became.....you finish the story :>)

anyway, I'd love the recipe.
