Start of another work week.

Ten Best Things to Say if you Get Caught Sleeping at Your Desk:
10. "They told me at the Blood Bank this might happen."

9. "This is just a 15 minute power nap they raved about in the time management course you sent me to."

8. "Whew! Guess I left the top off the Whiteout. You probably got here just in time."

7. "I wasn't sleeping! I was meditating on the mission statement and envisioning a new business strategy."

6. "I was testing my keyboard for drool resistance."

5. "I was doing a highly specific Yoga exercise to relieve work-related stress. Are you discriminatory toward people who practice Yoga?"

4. "Darn! Why did you interrupt me? I had almost figured out how to handle that big accounting problem."

3. "Did you ever notice sound coming out of these keyboards when you put your ear down real close?"

2 "Who put decaf in the wrong pot?"

AND THE NUMBER ONE best thing to say if you get caught sleeping at your
desk...

1. Raise your head slowly and say, "...in Jesus name, Amen.

Hi, I could have done with a few of those way back in the good old working days.

Now you give me the answers after I've retired and don't need them.

But I think I used the last one, one too many times. They caught on that Pastor's wives don't always pray at the keyboard.

Love and Hugs and smiles.

Thanks for your comment on our little Matthew. When his dad was born he was the hairest little thing I had ever seen...as you can see he still had plenty of hair and beard.

Two of my SIL's are Mexican and thus my dark hair dark eyed grandchildren. Myk married a girl of Irish/Russian decent, and thus, my two grandsons with red and blond hair. My grandchildren are colorful.

Hi Patty. Great post. One of the girls that I used to work with in Florida fell asleep at her desk all the time. I got a picture of her sleeping with a sheet over her shoulders in my mess of photo cd's!
Have a great week and Happy Thanksgiving!

Yes, this weather makes you sleepy at work, and that is *never* a good idea. A couple of these could work very well, too, I shall try to remember this post! (ahem, unless my boss is reading this blog, then it won't work! ;)

Thanks for your recent visit and in case I don't make it back between now and then, a very happy Thanksgiving to your family, too!
