Recently, the bf and I took a week-and-a-half long road trip for our spring vacation. We stopped first in SoCal to visit family, enjoyed a night in Vegas, then headed on to Moab, Utah for some hiking and sightseeing in Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. Paul took some really fantastic photos, and except for his having a cold through most of the trip, the vacation was very enjoyable.
When I returned to work on Monday morning, I admit I expected shenanigans. It’s sort of a tradition in our group to prank one another. I may or may not have wallpapered a coworker’s cubicle with pink My Little Pony wrapping paper while he was gone. Last time I was on vacation last October, I came back to an entire desk drawer full of rice.
As soon as I came around the corner, I was confronted with my grinning coworker, camera in hand (ok it was actually his smart phone, videotaping me, but anyhoo….). I glanced around, a bit nervously, knowing something was going to happen and it was going to be worthy of a second appearance on YouTube. I walked to my desk….and found it was covered in Saran Wrap.
(Watch the video of my discovery here.)
In the last few days I have managed to unwrap the majority of my belongings, but I’ve left the canopy up. I like it not just because the people around me are complaining a little about the glare, but because it seems to trap heat and my little desk is nice and warm now and I can drink iced tea without needing a sweater. I had the brilliant idea to write on my Saran Wrap Canopy, which now bears my name in red marker and a cute little drawing of Snoopy in a baseball cap.
Beware, gentle coworkers. I will get you back. Mark my words, I will.
