And now for my fun.
It's been a pretty rough week at work. Wednesday my company had some deep layoffs (thankfully, my job is safe). But of my group of 150, 50 are gone. Friends I've worked with for years. So coming into the office on Thursday was a bit emotional. But as I sat around the lunch table with about eight coworkers Thursday afternoon, we started talking about some random things. Teenage partying. Parties we remembered from when we were younger. One coworker relayed a story of how when he and his wife had gone out to dinner, the Freshman girl across the street had a party (her parents were out of town). My coworker and his wife returned home to find their mailbox stolen. The wife stormed over to the party, barged in, and demanded, "Where is my mailbox?" By the time he finished telling the story, we were in stitches, and, as I'm analyzing my fun-having times, I realized I was having fun. We'd been having tough emotions around the office, and the light-hearted laughter was just what we needed.
So what was your fun this week?
