I’ve always enjoyed the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, in the same way I enjoy beauty pageants and shows about modeling. They’re pretty and have abs of steel and get to wear fringe. I went to see the Boys play a few weeks ago, and I confess I spent most of my time watching the girls rather than the game. I–along with several female coworkers–watch their show and emulate their rockin’ freestyle audition dance moves. (And, I swear, this was merely mocking the dolls, not the actual cheerleaders. Honest, girls!)
But now, I love the babes in blue even more, as I’ve somehow–quite inexplicably–gotten on their mailing list. And what do I get delivered today but a 2008 Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders Calendar–signed by every member of the squad. With personalized messages, too! “Cowboys cheers to Jessica!” says Jennifer. “Jessica–all my love!” says Christina. No matter that it’s still December, because it’s already 2008 in my cube. And I think it’s only a little weird that I went to high school with Miss January and now have her bikini-clad picture hanging up on my wall, wishing me a happy new year. (Hey Melissa!)
A few observances from the D staffers, each of whom have come by my cube to stare:
1. The calendar size is 15″x15″. The actual month grid, however, takes up about 3 inches in the bottom right hand corner, rendering it pretty useless.
2. The girls’ names don’t actually appear anywhere on the pages.
3. Andrea is totally giving me the come-hither look.
So thanks to the lovely and generous individual who sent me a copy, whoever you are. You’ve made me the most popular girl in the office.
