In preparation for our office party this year, I wrote a poem. Then I gathered together the things I would need to have a party with Romeo and Danielle. (The Temptations were for Romeo, the phone for Danielle, and the coffee for me.)
Romeo, my cat, is used to hearing me talk out loud as I proofread and he was unusually excited about hearing the poem.
Danielle, who lives several time zones away in Saskatchewan, also works alone (and helps me out lots) so I invited her to my office party by phone. It was a good move because she’s a master at rhyming words.
After much anticipation, I started to read the finished poem aloud to them. As you can see in the photos above, I had their full attention.
When I was done, Romeo was looking for a place to sleep (I’m sure because he was full of treats) and Danielle said, “Didn’t I already hear that story?” I had to remind her it was true.
We wish you a fun-filled holiday season! (And heed my true story – you really don’t want keyboard indents on your face when you have to go to a party in person 😉
