Today, I am working outside from 10AM to 6PM... it's our major spring fundraiser, and staff from all of our sites will be working together. It's a great day for seeing people I haven't seen in a while, both co-workers and visitors. I enjoy the day, but it kinda kicks my ass. Of course, I have taken my usual warm-weather outdoor work precautions. I filled the 100 ounce Camelback "bladder" with water last night and threw it in the 'fridge, so I can re-hydrate. This year, I have slathered myself with a combination SPF30 sunscreen and natural insect repellent... consequently, I smell like a citronella candle, which is better than smelling like a sweat loaf.
Near the parking lot, there is a cottonwood tree sending out seeds so it looks as if there were drifts of cotton balls covering large portions of the property. I'll keep an eye out for my good friend Shelly, who will probably be around making sure her kids get laid.
After work, I'll actually have the luxury of going out for a cold beer, as I don't have to return to work until 4PM tomorrow. I think I'll need some hoppy sustenance after a long, citronella-scented day on the job.
