I have been at work less than a week and yet I got to participate in the festivities today at work that lasted from 11:30-3:30. They used the upper deck of the parking garage to erect tents to serve food, hold a talent show, and have carnival games. I went out at 11:30 to meet my boss, but I had a meeting at noon. I got a hot dog and some baked beans, but I woofed it all down before my boss and other office colleagues showed up. The worst part about it is I had a second lunch at the meeting, where they catered in Moe’s.
After the meeting, I returned to the festivities and played carnival games and ate popcorn. I did surprisingly well at skee ball and another game called bank shot, in which you had to shoot a golf ball (as if you were playing pool) into a hole. I won two stuffed sharks and two stuffed snakes. When I came back later after turning in my gym paperwork, I played trivia and won an iTunes gift card, plus a squishy Braves baseball playing skee ball yet again. What can I say? It was addictive.
