Craziness at work. Again.
I guess we have a good excuse
since we were knee deep in Halloween festivities.
The boss hung up a full-sized skeleton in a black cape
with arms outstretched.
Oddly we all noticed that when we're in there
having a conversation with her,
I'd drift back into it.
I said I must be needing a hug
and it was the closest I'd ever get.
Which prompted Colleen to snap a picture
to send out to all the school kitchen managers
and clerks captioned,
"Gail's Not Lonely Anymore,"
and with the announcement "Gail meets Al."
Which caused one of them to respond,
I said to answer, "Over Gail's dead body."
Then the field supervisor arrived,
all decked out for Halloween,
and she snapped the next picture,
which she sent out captioned,
"Love Triangle," and says,
"WillaMEANa tries to steal Al from Gail!"
(His name is William.)
At the end of the day I wished them all
a Happy Halloween,
and said that mine was looking up ...
now I'd met Al. "(If Bill would just go home!)"
Bill, of course, being bold enough to dress up like that,
also hammed it up
when we went to one of the schools
to document their celebration.
It was literally chaos when we showed up.
