The Nuthouse Has Two New Mascots
The employees of The Nuthouse have been enjoying this Boss Free time. Business continues to improve and we are really quite busy; orders continue to come in and materials continue to go out the door. Our sales this year might not be as poor as we were anticipating considering all the time we were shut down and working from home.
When I arrived home last night, I felt a surge of ambition and decided to clean out a closet that was full of crap. You know, everyone has that one closet in their home that seems to be the Bermuda Triangle of stuff. I don't really know how everything gets in there, but once it does, the stuff doesn't like to leave quietly. During my expedition, I found a small, desk sized fish tank in the back corner of the closet. It was octagon shaped and held almost two gallons of water. It was complete with rocks for the bottom and a bubblier so the fish received air. I am embarrassed to say I had never even taken it out of the box, but once I saw it, I knew exactly where it belonged....on my desk at The Nuthouse!
This morning, I arrived a little early for work and began its set up on the corner of my desk. As my cohorts filtered in for the day, they were quite interested in my newest desk decoration and seemed excited to have some fish in the office. After setting it up, I ran to the pet store and purchased two small fish, some fish food, a net and some drops to take chlorine out of water. I brought my haul back to The Nuthouse and introduced our new mascots not only to our crazy group but also to their new home.
We had pizza and wings brought in for lunch. We figured today would be our last day without The Boss in the office, so we might as well live it up! Over lunch, I called an impromptu staff meeting to discuss names for our new mascots. Some of the names that my fellow employees came up with were awesomely hilarious, but NSFW. So we settled on "Frick" and "Frack" - these names seemed to not only fit the fish, but also the nutty environment I had brought them into.
Welcome to The Nuthouse Frick and Frack - I cannot wait to hear what The Boss has to say about you two!
