Ode to past joy

Filed under: General — Tom @ 12:05 am

You know, I used to get to write really good things in “event” cards at work (save for bereavement or other “sad” cards, because even I’m not that low,) but apparently my humor is just not appreciated anymore. It seems like the cards come to me last so I don’t get a chance to go off on one of my tangential, sometimes meaningless rants – because by the time they come around to me, there’s very little room left to say anything more than two or three words. Granted, I guess maybe it’s slightly rude to do something weird, but come on – how meaningful is “Happy birthday” 40 times over on every single card? I took extra time out of my day to say something specific and unique and special. Who knows, someday those weird little inscriptions I left could be worth lots of money. Maybe.

  1. I think I speak for most when I say we looked forward to your contributions to the cards at work! I remember at one point adding that to the list of things I was going to miss!
