Have I ever told you that I loooooooove kids and babies? Would I like to live with more than one of them? No! I'm too lazy and kids are alot of work. I just like playing with them. They bring me joy.
A few years ago someone in the office had a baby and when she emailed the pic to me, I put it up as my desktop background cuz like I said, I LOVE BABIES! Since then, I've always kept someone's kid on my desktop. Whenever someone stops by they always want to see whose cute kid is being featured. Coworkers email me their kids pics regularly so I rotate. It's always been kids for the last few years. Whenever I see those innocent eyes it picks up my day.
Until the group blogger photo...
I replaced a cute little 2 yr old girl with Oh Captain's blogger pic and I got quite a few disgruntled comments from parents but the funniest came from a Senior Associate the other day. This is a divorced guy with no kids and the best way to describe him is "metrosexual". Always dresses to the nines with every hair in place, usually wearing a tie, although it's NOT required. You know the type, right?
So he glances at my desktop, sees the pic and says "Oh this must be from the Vegas trip". Yup!
Then he looks a little closer and says "What a group of people. They look like they just rolled out of bed."
I explain that yes, most of us did just roll out of bed and most are hung over. He digests this nugget and responds....
"But still, take a look at that sorry guy....do you actually know him, did you talk to him?"
"That's Lightning! Of course I talked to him! That's my buddy."
PS. I replaced the blogger pic this morning with a couple of Mormon cuties.
