The Company Picnic

Today, the organization is going to have it's staff picnic. It's a great opportunity for everybody from the various sites and divisions to gather together to socialize. Typically, one of my co-workers gives a presentation... we're a talented bunch, all told... and we have a variety of games and activities. This year, there will be a dessert contest and my co-worker **REDACTED** made some strawberry margarita jello shots to enter into the contest. Things should get a little interesting, as most of my co-workers don't seem to be big boozers (I hold up my end of the bargain).

I'm at the tail end of a graveyard shift, so I'll need to shave and clean myself up to make myself presentable before heading to the picnic site. I always bring a change of clothes to work- when there are visitors on site, I wear "business casual", but I change into a T-shirt and gym shorts or sweats when I am alone on site holding down the fort. Today, I'll reverse the trend.

I just hope I don't konk out face-first in the macaroni salad.

Have some shots for me!

P.S. You need to stay up and take pictures of the other people who pass out...not vicey versey.

It's funny, there were a couple of bocce courts set up on the grounds and I witnessed several of my coworkers transform from bocce n00bs to bocce fiends before my very eyes.

The picnic was a lot of fun, and I passed out as soon as I got home and brushed my toofies. Out like a light!

I love the thought of a works picnic
We had one once in my last job, when I was ward manager and it was a lovely experience
That was back in 2000
