Slice of Lime-Two Ladies Leaping

As you know, Wednesday was Leap Year Day (And may I wish a very happy anniversary to Suldog and his lovely wife,  Yep, they got married on Leap Day.  How cool is that?)  It was a VERY slow day at work due to some weather conditions.  We were bored out of our minds.  You may remember how I shared that a coworker and I are in touch with our inner 12 year old boys (Mine is Jeff, hers is Barry.)  It can be a dangerous thing when Jeff and Barry get bored.  They create mayhem.  They had to take pictures of how bored they were.



Early in the day Jeff suggested we celebrate Leap Day by leaping around the office.  Barry wasn't so sure about the idea until Jeff did it first but he got into the spirit soon enough.  Then we texted another coworker with some tasteless jokes.  Understand that this other lady is hilariously innocent but ALWAYS laughs at Jeff and Barry.  She responded with some appropriately gross retorts so we decided she needed to finally admit she had an inner 12 year old boy too.  We named him Jimmy.  We are working on initiation rites now.




Finally, Jeff decided that just skipping around the room was not sufficiently interesting or celebratory.  We needed to start jumping off of things.  Ready for take-off...  Don't worry.  No Limes were injured in the production of this post but this is what happens when I am not allowed to follow through on my own suggestions for productive work and I am not given anything meaningful to do.  Gotta keep me busy to keep me out of trouble...kind of like how it is with a 12 year old boy.

On third-shift we just find a quiet room and take naps.

". . . no Limes were injured. . ."

Given your history, that borders on the miraculous. . .

(And, as re our friend Suldog - sly like a fox, he is, only having to pop for anni gifts every four years. . .)

Jimmy is a fab name for an inner 12 YO boy!

But more importantly, I couldn't help but notice the awesome boots you are wearing in that bottom photo! You are one stylin' Lime!

Hooray for inner 12 year old boys! Everyone should have one. :)

Secret Agent Woman said...

Why not? Every special day deserves celebration. Although, my inner boy is an inner girl - the younger me who was energetic and a little inclined to walk on the edge.

Cool boots. One of the few things I like about winter.

Thanks for the happy shout out! Looking forward to leaping with you in person sometime soon!
