I have been having a really difficult time at work, as things just keep getting pushed further and further back on the schedule. This is a frustration that I have learned to expect, but it still gets me down in the dumps. It's times like this, when I'm all blue and mopey, that I really appreciate having a good friend around.
Did you know that frilled lizards run really fast on their hind legs because the sand is so hot? I was under the silly assumption that they puffed themselves up like that as a sign of aggression. Fortunately, my good ol' pal Joe set me straight.
And then, just to make sure I understood the mechanics of it all, Joe fashioned his own "frill" out of a few pieces of copy paper and ran, in lizard fashion, around our entire department at the height of the work day.
Thanks, Joe. I needed that.
