Last week a co-worker who shall remain nameless (let's call him Goose) and I had gone out to lunch and on the way back I see someone parking in one of the executive parking spaces whom I did not recognize. As we entered the building Goose said hello to the exec, a mid 30-ish casually dressed guy. The exec said hello back and then went his own way as we headed back to our desks. When he was out of earshot I asked Goose “Who's that?“. He replied “I think it's the new CIO“.

Now this is the important part; what I wanted to say was “He's pretty young“.

However, I unfortunately stuttered a bit, so what I actually said was “He's p-p-pretty“, and stopped right there.

I'll let you make your own jokes.
