I was in a parade last week! I was invited by one of my coworkers to help them represent our school in the local home days parade. Yay! Back in my other job, I wanted to walk in the parade, but then it was rained out. This time a group of us got to go, and one of my managers arranged it so that I’d have coverage for the phone. The person who sat up at the desk was quite frosty about it. Oh well. She survived.
Anyway, one of the others who went with us had a convertible, so two of us rode the parade with the top down while the others walked along the street passing out candy and college stuff. It was very cool. I have never been in a parade before, so this was quite a trip.
I was also able to wear jeans, tennis shoes and of course a T-shirt with our college logo on it. We returned to the campus at about 8pm. It was my late day, so I decided to relieve the frosty coworker (who wasn’t as frosty when she realized she could go back to her desk) and sat up at the desk for an hour; quite relaxed in casual clothes. I gave the banner back to the manager who let me go, and he looked happy that I had a good time. I don’t usually see him happy, and he looks more approachable when he’s happy.
Oh and this just in….I’ve been chosen to pick next week’s word. I was totally stumped by the word this week and just couldn’t come up with anything. How about we go with the word “puzzled”? Yes, let’s go with that word.
