There’s something about 3 p.m. on a muggy summer afternoon. Especially when you’re staring at a computer screen and working on something as sinister and nasty as re-writing a policy document. It was definitely time for a road-trip.
It was amazing how easy it was to inspire my fellow computer junkies to bail on their tasks at hand and join me in my search for something to help me make it through the afternoon. I wandered through the office bemoaning the fact that the caffeine run to Starbuck’s seemed to be a morning activity when what I needed was something to revive me in the afternoon! The next thing I know, I had picked up some handy intel about a couple of the guys discussing an ice cream run. The rest, well, it was pretty easy.
Within 5 minutes, 6 afternoon slackers were all headed down the street in search of something to lift the spirits. The instructions were simple—if anyone asks, this is an informal staff meeting. It was a great afternoon for a walk. On the return, we had everything from iced coffee, to Coke floats and orange creamsicle drinks in our hot little hands. Ahhh, I love summer. That is, the road trip parts of it. 🙂
