I wish I had a camera right now. I’m sitting at my desk under a palm tree sipping a pina colada from a pineapple with 2 beach balls and a shitload of candy.
Today is our companies annual BBQ. They bring out food (burgers, dogs, chicken, sausage, etc), games (contests, dunk tank, basketball, etc), and give staff additional time to enjoy the festivities. As always, I made it a point to sign up for everything (somehow, they didnt schedule me for the water-baloon toss, but I took part in the limbo and pie eating contests.
I didn’t have much of a chance in the Limbo. It was me and 2 other big guys up against a gymnist. She was tiny and could practically walk under the pole while we were straining to get under the damn thing. She could even get under it at it’s lowest placement. I guess I could say I tied for second place, but I don’t know thats much of an accomplishment.
I had my chance to shine in the pie-eating contest. I won it last year, so I had a reputation to uphold. We were given a small 5 inch pie with whipped cream topping piled on. Mine was a cherry pie! Upon being told to begin, I plowed right past the whipped cream into the pie itself and sucked down that pie like.. well, no need to get vulgar in here… Needless to say, I prevailed once again and maintained my title as pie-eating champion.
So here I sit, with a pineapple water bottle filled with pina-colada (non-alcoholic unfortunately), a few beach balls, a pile of candy pouring out of a canvas bag, a yo-yo, and an inflatable palm tree which I stole from the hallway.
