That Really Brightened My Day

Today started out like any other. I went to work and sat in a million meetings wondering if I would actually get to do anything productive at work, like o say, work. And in the end it all didn't matter. When I could finally get down to getting something done in the late afternoon, the power went out.

And that was the best part of my day. Nothing seems to bring people together quite like a good power outage. You laugh and joke in the ominous darkness. You get to know your neighbors better. I think we need to unplug a little more often. We get so wrapped up in our work that we forget to look at each other as people instead of as to-do items.

It was great.
