Co-worker: Maggie! Your dress! It is so cute! I feel like I should give you a corsage!
[Lengthy discussion about whether this means my dress is too fancy for work, and about my intricate yet unresolved feelings about ruffles. Resolved: the dress is fun and work-appropriate.]
Maggie (loudly, about to exit the office): However, if you gave me a corsage, I would TOTALLY wear it! It would be HILARIOUS! (exits office)
Male grad student (standing directly outside office door, and could apparently hear most if not all of previous conversation): Laughs openly at Maggie.
