It’s also campaign season, that hot McCainiac or Obama Girl will only be in your midst ’til November, if that long. And I’ve noticed that when it comes to shift work, hooking up with someone who works different hours is not seriously frowned upon (i.e. hospitals, retail, restaurants, and law enforcement). There are other circumstances, about which you are adult enough to be aware, that may foster (safe) office play.
