While Working with Duncan

It's official, I am finally on vacation for the next eleven days. I can barely contain my excitement, and because the store is closed on Fridays and I only work a half day I decided that Duncan would come to work with me. We did this last year and had a great time; in fact, it was one of the best days I've ever had there. This year was just as wonderful. Duncan was quite the hit, flirting with all the girls, especially Amber, but that may been because she was enveloped in a cloud of his favorite perfume, Eau de Turkey Sandwich. He spent much of the morning laying quietly behind my chair, only occasionally getting up to demand a game of fetch down the text aisles. He rarely left my side and began crying the one time I stepped out to fill his water bowl so I hurried back in so he could jump all over me and shake his rear end like he hadn't seen me for weeks. It was a glorious reunion, let me tell you.

I think every day should be Bring Your Dog to Work Day. It's so much more fun, and even a little productive. We should start a petition or a movement!

You're a lucky man, Curt. There'd be carnage if I brought Emily to work with me.

Enjoy your vacation - you have, no doubt, earned it. So, any plans?

I plan on becoming acquainted with my couch, with the pool in the complex where I live (I may even attempt to sneak Duncan in after hours, but shhhhhh, don't tell anyone!) and I hope to visit some of the hiking trails in the area. And, if I'm very good, I may forsake my doctor's recommendation and buy some liquor and booze it up a night or two (it won't take much. I recently finished off a bottle of vodka that I've had for nearly two years!).

Any other suggestions?

Mojitos. You have to do Mojitos. I just had them for the first time in my life last night. I can hardly wait to have one today! (You can make them with very little rum or suit your taste.) Enjoy your break and beautiful Duncan.

You could train Duncan to scare away the publisher reps. But he's probably too sweet to do that.

Can you trust him enough to take him to work? He could steal your coworker's hearts and your job.

Enjoy your vacation Curt. I'm a margarita man myself. I know that's so foofy.
