Today was our snack day at work and we had enough food to feed a small army and the food seemed to multiply throughout the day. I arrived around 6:45 so that I could update my morning reports and then help get the conference room set up. The girl who was bringing the tablecloths was running late and so arriving early didn't do me much good as I needed the tablecloths, plates, etc. to set up the room. She arrived a few minutes before 7:30 and I met her outside and helped her bring everything in. We got the room set up and then the food started arriving.
I brought sausage balls and a chicken ball to this work soiree of ours.
Some of the other items that were brought included seven layer dip,
homemade salsa, cheeseball, spinach dip, Boston butts, Chick-fil-A
trays, cookies, cakes, the list could go on and on. There was seriously a
lot of food. We ran out of plates before lunch time and had to get
another stash from the cafeteria. HR supplied us with a tray of chicken
fingers at lunch time and those were devoured so quickly I never even
saw them - and I sit right beside the conference room where all the food
was being kept.
Snack day is my favorite day of the work year. Everyone is in a good
mood and jolly and having a good time. Most of the time we are all just
trying to get through the day without killing each other. Okay, maybe
it's not that bad, but all our attitudes greatly improve on snack day.
After our first trip round the food table we were joking about how
eating was going to put us in comatose state and we would all want a
nap. That's when one of the guy's came up with the brilliant idea to
take these two photos.
I'm not gonna lie, I could totally have used a nap once or twice
throughout the day. I managed to stay awake and I also managed to not
eat too terribly much. I wasn't stuffed to the gills and miserable as
can easily be the case on days like this. It was a really fun day at
work. It's nice to see folks loosen up a little and have a little fun.
Tonight we are headed to The Living Christmas Tree and I hope to have a
Friday afternoon post up about that experience. I'm looking forward to
it as it is usually a really nice show.
