Office hilarity

I enjoy my job. It's a nice work environment, there are good benefits, and the people are really nice. But, as in any office, sometimes things can get a little dull. So my co-workers and I have come up with ways to entertain ourselves from time to time. Before you start picturing really complex pranks, check out this video to get a better idea of the level of pranking I'm talking about:

Windward Reports

Our favorite type of office prank is to cut out a picture of each other (either from Facebook or our office photo album), cut it apart so it fits on the body of the picture we're working with, glue it to a hilarious picture, then hide it either on the other's corkboard or in a journal they're working on so they find it when they don't expect it. Cracks us up every time. (I told you not to get your hopes up for some really complicated jokes!)

Anyway, last week Kathy and Justin and I were talking about The Rock, AKA Dwayne Johnson, and I mentioned that he is my current celebrity crush. Kathy gave me the good news (good news for me, bad for the Rock and his now ex-wife) that the Rock is single again. This was great news considering that the only thing keeping the Rock and me apart was the fact that he was married! Now I can make my move! I hope you caught the sarcasm there.

So, today at work Kathy and Justin were asking me how things went with the Rock the other night. I knew I was missing something, but couldn't figure it out. Kathy said that the dress I wore looked like it was pretty revealing. Once again, I knew something was up, but didn't know what she was referring to. Finally, after Justin drew my attention to something on my cork board, I noticed that on it was a picture of me with The Rock! Before you worry about my fashion sense and sense of decency, I want to assure you that that is only my head glued to a woman's body and I would never wear a dress like that. The funny thing is, when I saw the picture I was so embarrassed at the idea of wearing a dress like that! I think I even blushed. And I knew it wasn't me!

I took two days off last week, so that gave Justin and Kathy time to create several hilarious pictures of me doing ridiculous things, but this one is my favorite. I just wish it were a real picture because it looks like it was a good time. But if that had been me, I would've worn a shrug.

I personally thought the dress was stunning on you! You can NEVER go wrong with a shiny silver. That's classy stuff. Forget the shrug.

I like shrugs, too. Have you seen Be Cool? My fave rock movie, by far.

What a great idea!
I also liked the dress. You should find a similar one to wear to church on Sunday.

Katherine said...

Man, I am SO jealous that you got to spend an awesome make-believe evening with The Rock! He's dreamy. That's a nice shrug, too - it matches the dress well!

Abram, I didn't know you liked shrugs too! That's cool. ;) I haven't seen Be Cool, but I'll check it out! Thanks for the recommendation.
