Company Picnic

We had our company picnic today at West Lake Beach. Maggie won the prize for most garish outfit — a $40 gift certificate for Barnes & Noble, which I’ll happily help her spend, since she’s still preliterate. Emily got second prize in the limbo contest, earning a gift certificate to Amy’s Ice Cream, which she likes, but which I think tastes like licking sugared butter. Kathy got out on the jet ski for a while, and I enjoyed seeing work friends with their families away from the pallid fluorescent lights of the office.
