Our End of the World Is Getting Back to "Normal"
Yesterday, The Boss decided that he would run and grab lunch (rather than having it delivered), because he had some errands to run. Not to look a gift horse in the mouth, but when he runs to get lunch, it TAKES FOREVER! I'm not sure what exactly his errands were, but they must have been numerous because he didn't return with lunch until well after 1 PM. Now, let me tell you a little about me and food. Although never confirmed by a doctor's note, I am under the belief that I suffer from bouts of low blood sugar. It is not at all debilitating, but if I don't eat at normal intervals, I tend to have a severe reaction. Now, some who suffer from this condition may feel light-headed or sick; my symptoms are a bit different - I get down right mean! I can be alone in a room and become irritated to the point of grinding my teeth for no other reason than it is time for me to be fed. I guess I really am just an infant in a grown man's body! Fortunately, I know how I am (and can become), so I always have snacks in my desk. These snacks might be the only thing standing between me and a jail cell at times.
When The Boss finally arrived with the food, I was teetering on the edge of hurting someone. He walks in the office without the food but carrying three Costco sized packages of toilet paper! I know you remember from my previous posts how much toilet paper The Boss buys for the office (click here for toilet paper story), but with the recent low supplies due to corona virus, his stock has been greatly depleted. He put the packages of TP in the kitchen and went back outside. I thought he was retrieving the food, but no.... next, he comes in with three even larger packages of paper towels. The only thing going through my brain is, did this man forget the damn food? Where is it and if he doesn't bring it in soon, I am going to need to go to my snack drawer again! Luckily, the third trip outside was to bring in the food - and it ended up being delicious!
This brings me to the reason behind the blog title today - I guess our area is getting back to normal because he was able to find and buy such a large cache of toilet paper and paper towels. I wish I could have been able to see his face when he saw all those paper supplies - he must have been so happy! It's the simple things!
All in all, the team building day at the office was relaxing and nice. Lunch was delicious and we all sat around and caught up with each other. Leaving early was wonderful also - the weather, although hot, has been so beautiful, so it was nice to get an early start on the weekend. I may work in a nuthouse, but it keeps me entertained!
