That is the sound of my cow-orker making 3 cartwheels down the hall...well, 2 and a half, the thunk is her foot hitting the door in the middle of the last one. We've been gathered in the lunchroom munching on bagels (courtesy of the firm) and giving our orders for coffee, tea, or hot chocolate from the coffee shop downstairs (courtesy of the firm). Later we will order in Chinese food (on the firm) and play games (Apples to Apples, for example). The office is closing early, too.
Where is the firm? On retreat. All the attorneys are out golfing this morning, then this afternoon they will meet and talk about the business of the law firm.
Of course we do have our work, too, but we're helping each other out to get it all done by lunchtime.
I do appreciate my employers.
