I Got Home With My Imagination

Sometimes I can actually be rather productive (imagine that!) and still have fun at work.  Today was one of those days.  I went out for coff-ay with Suzie Q, figured out a way to get one of the assistant directors to “find her own best solution,” and solved a few timekeeping mysteries.  The director found something I let slip through the cracks (oops!), but I’m almost done patching things up.  I placed a supply order, but was deeply saddened when my coworker decided she didn’t want those smelly, fruity markers.  Bust.  I really wanted a set.  I was supposed to get 14 total, so what’s one more?

Work is starting to get back to some sort of regular schedule.  We have our weekly meeting tomorrow, which will be a nice way to break up the day.  It was on hiatus for the past month or more.  I actually really like meetings—they force me to be more productive and I feel like my work actually matters.  A lot of the Gal Pals are stressed out right now.  I think we’re pretty tough, so let’s just hang in there.  I obviously don’t have all the answers, but I can certainly relate.  I hope all of your situations improve!  I can only offer one paltry remedy for a bad day—Girl Friday’s version of Mad Libs!  Your assignment, should you choose to accept, is to provide words for the following prompts, and I will write a little story just for you!
