Author's Notes: I did a lyrics quiz in my journal and bexatious asked for a drabble as her prize. This is it! It is something that I have had floating around on the hard drive and in my head for sometime, so I finally fleshed it out. And hopefully I brought the funny! Thanks to strangitegrl and tinhutladay for the betas. Special thanks to screenmusings.net for the caps!
Summary: Josh has an afternoon meeting to attend.
Donna knocks on the door frame to Josh's office.
Josh looks up from where he's talking to Sam. "Yeah?"
"What are you guys doing?"
"We are important men, Donna, and we were doing things important men do, like running the country."
Sam smirks and looks up at Donna. "Actually we were discussing string theory."
Donna returns the smirk. "Yeah, that's what I figured."
Josh rolls his eyes. "So, did you need something?"
"Yes. I just wanted to check with you before I scheduled a lunch meeting for you with the International Relations Research Associate at the usual place at 2:30 today."
He gives her a look that clearly asks, "What in hell are you talking about?"
She returns it with a look that clearly says, "Just play along!" from her position behind Sam.
"Sure... I guess that'd be okay... Of course, you'd know better, being my assistant and all," Josh says, flashing the dimples, as Donna rolls her eyes.
"So, who is Josh is having lunch with? I've never heard of them before," Sam cranes his neck to ask Donna.
"Oh, you haven't had the pleasure of meeting Marta! She's originally from Belarus and she works for the State Department traveling throughout Europe. She occasionally briefs Josh on International Affairs when she's in Washington."
Donna turns to leave but remembers something and turns back to Josh. "Can I use the time to get my hair trimmed since the salon is near where you're meeting Marta for lunch? That way I can catch a ride with you and I'll meet you at the restaurant after I'm done for a ride back."
Josh gives her another funny look, but it's one that says he might be catching on. He smiles and says, "Sure, no problem."
Once they get into his car, Josh smirks and asks, "Is this what I think it is, 'cause I don't know anyone named Marta."
Donna flashes a wicked smile and commands, "Drive. We've only got about two hours till your next appointment."
They barely make it inside the door of his condo as he pushes her up against it and kisses her. Before he can say anything, she quickly checks her watch, starts undressing him and says, "Listen up--here's the plan: the pizza is going to be here in 35 minutes and we'll have to take a shower before we go back to the office. So, we need to make this quick."
Josh wags his eyebrows and whispers in her ear, "So Marta, tell me about Belarus..." as clothes start flying in every direction...
As they're riding in the car on the way back to the office, Josh says, "Once again, your drama classes have proven useful. But what, pray tell, brought all of this on today?"
"You're wearing your Tuesday suit. You know I can't get enough of the Tuesday suit," she admits.
Josh beams, but then questions, "Why didn't it happen last Tuesday, or the Tuesday before that, then?"
"I'm prepared on Tuesdays. But this week you wore it on Monday instead, and I was thrown off by it all, and couldn't control myself," she stammers as she blushes.
"Well, I'll have to remember to change up the order of my suits more often," he mutters with a grin.
Donna pauses by Josh's office as she overhears Sam ask him about his meeting with Marta. Josh sees Donna just outside the door, so he speaks a little louder than necessary.
"It went well. She says that relations with most of the European nations and the U.S. are going very well. Especially Italy and Ireland. Apparently they can't get enough of us!"
Donna smiles to herself and goes back to work.
