Cereal is an acceptable meal at all times of the day.
It’s Tuesday, which feels like Monday. And time to get back to work after a nice relaxing few days off. Leslie’s boss gave them extra time off, so she’s been out of the office since Friday, and she returns to work tomorrow. I hope she’s home today doing some laborious tasks, like laundry and preparing dinner.
It wasn’t easy to get up this morning. But there wasn’t much traffic on the road (maybe schools are out one more day)? and I came in to a dead plant and a dead lightbulb above my desk. It looked like I was going to serve cocktails for happy hour at mid-day. The building engineer was here in no time and fixed the bulb while straddling part of my desk and knocking my keyboard over. Awkward for the win!
Today is also a day to celebrate someone’s retirement.
Last year, BuzzFeed wrote an article about Diana Hunter, also known as the Honey Bunches of Oats Lady. As the article stated, “Unlike Flo [from Progressive], Diana actually works at the company that she promotes—she’s legit!” The article goes on to commend Diana because she has a permanent smile on her face, and she finds joy and love in life by doing her job. She made those “sparkle flakes” you love to eat with a spoon.
One of her coworkers notified BuzzFeed about Diana’s retirement last week and a follow-up article states: “Diana here finds the JOY and LOVE in life by making these flakes. She’s not an actress—she’s just like us!” She is indeed work goals, happiness goals, laugh goals. Diana is everything.
Do you have anyone in your life who reminds you of Diana? Someone who just appears to love life, does her job with a smile on her face, and has the admiration of her coworkers. Are you that person? At one time, I might have been the one who did her job with a smile, but I was young then.
