[I'm Feeling |embarrassedembarrassed]

Me: Hey Tyler ... ?

Young and Cute Coworker: Yup

Me: Can you help me? I can't think of this word. it's on the tip of my tongue (!! omfg. dying)

YCC: okay

Me: What's another word for Making Something Bigger?

YCC: *silence*

Me: Apparently Enlargen isn't really a word. According to spellcheck.

YCC: ummmm ? *starts blushing*

Me: (totally clueless) Basically, I need a word that's ACTUALLY a word that means the same thing as englargen, but I want to start my sentence with it... so I guess it needs to be like a verb. or action verb (!!!! killlll me).

YCC: *red now and just blinking at me*

Me: ..... that means to make bigger.... ?

YCC: *reaaaaaaally red now* ummmm...

Me: (lightbulb ding) OH! MY GOD! Okay! Because, see, I had an assignment to get rid of one bar code specifically to make the other three bar codes bigger on the product ID label for... uhm... *totally purple faced now* yeah, and, since that was the whole, like, PURPOSE, I wanted to start the sentence with it *starts walking away* so, but, anyway... nevermind!

YCC: rescaled?
 
Me: *from the hallway* YES. That works! Awesome. Thank You!

Haha, too funny.
i used to have conversations like that with coworkers. It was hard in a male dominated position. Everything you say, they can take it as sexual.

LOL, I had something like that happen a few months back; I said something weirdly sexual around all male coworkers and they were shocked, haha, and I was very embarrassed. Sometimes it's too late and you don't realize what you've just said.
