so today is the IT BOSS' Birthday... but since he had a previous engagement for lunch.. IT fun coordinator (that's me) decided upon doing the whole surprise cake thing in the afternoon.
2:34pm_ mission begins. sneaked out to pick up the cake, plates, and forks at Krogers.
2:51pm_ pulled back into the parking lot, sneaked the cake into the building.. which included peering around corners, hand signals, coming to a complete stand still in the middle of the hall when we heard voices.. only to realize what could we do if it was him anyways. (ie. not drop the cake and run)
2:56pm_ cake is set in the IT fun area, but noticed BOSS' office light was off.. where is the BOSS?
3:00pm_ checked out the parking lot, no BOSS car to be found.
3:02pm_ confirmed BOSS has left the building. mission FOILED.
at least the cake fit in the IT mini fridge.
This is where the hungry come to feed. For mine is a generation that circles the globe and searches for something we haven't tried before. So never refuse an invitation, never resist the unfamiliar, never fail to be polite and never outstay the welcome. Just keep your mind open and suck in the experience. And if it hurts, you know what? It's probably worth it.
