So, awhile back ManCandy and I were assigned to the same project - he's been absent from work a lot but I've been working on my part and our roles are to do this work somewhat in tandem but not necessarily at the same time but it requires some coordination/discussion. He's way behind in schedule but the client contacted us to find out progress...and ManCandy came over to my desk! (hee) and we had a very nice professional discussion, my hands didn't shake while handling paperwork and I think I came off at least somewhat competent! Yeah me! I think I will be totally able to work with this person professionally in the future... and without to much of the vapors ;p
