It’s been a fun morning at work. I sent an email to the folks I see on a regular basis explaining my head-shaving. The comments have varied:
“Come see me! I gotta see this!” –Pam, the secretary across the hall.
“Good Lord! Are you joining the military?” –Connie, one of our electrical designers.
“Nice ‘do.” –Brian, our EE, who’s a bit bald himself.
“Now you know how I feel. Get yourself a cap for when you go outside, though. Frying your noggin isn’t any fun.” –Ernie, one of our ME’s, who’s a bit bald himself, too.
“That’s a noble thing to do.” –Ursula, one of our procurement folks.
“At least you were a good sport about it. I don’t think I could have done it.” –Ed, my manager, who attends the same church that I do.
“I’m so vain … I don’t think I could ever do that.” –Bill, one of those people I see lots of at TBE but am never sure what he does.
“…” –David, our QE, who knew about this beforehand and still nearly passed out.
“WHAT THE HELL DID YOU DO THAT FOR?!?!?!” –James, our other group ME, who thinks I’ve lost my mind.
“Oh … my … God.” –Dani, our manufacturing planner and the sole woman in our group. We love Dani. 🙂
And the best of all …
“The moral of this story: Don’t gamble, especially at church. God will get you.” –Phyllis, our QA.
