The Company Picnic
I'm listening to Johnny Cash sing Ring of Fire, as I work my way through my afternoon emails. No, I am not at home. I am at work. Johnny is wrapping up and Sheryl Crow is now singing about having fun until the sun comes up over Santa Monica Blvd. Let me explain....Tonight is our company picnic. My desk is right by the back door that looks out to our rec park. Mind you, I am in my cube at my desk so I don't actually 'look' out at the grassy slopes beyond the door. But today is a nice California day - it will reach about 80-something degrees - and so the door is open to let the breeze in. Preparations are in full throttle to get the rec yard ready for our employees and their families to descend on the place, anticipating food, fun and prizes. The music has been playing on a loop since about 10am this morning and I am really enjoying it. This is the first time that we've had our company picnic right here in our own backyard. It's a perfect early summer evening for it. This is how I see it: a little Johnny, me winning one of the flat screen TV's, me becoming extremely happy! Wish me luck!
