The big boss is out of town so I am getting in some really quality at-work knitting time today. I’m planning on catching up on online TV and getting through as much of the hand towel as I can. In other slacking-off-at-work news (besides the blog, ‘cause duh, what else is there to do at the office?) today our months-long game of Water-Bottle-Recycling-Jenga came to a tragic end.
What’s Water-Bottle-Recycling-Jenga? Quite simply, it’s a game of skill and strategy based on the classic brick-stacking Jenga game whose history is helpfully detailed by the Hasbro Corporation on their website, here.
The Office version is a simple variation on the old classic. First, find an inconspicuous office cupboard or closet, like so:
Then begin building a tower of empty water bottles within. When the game reaches the height of suspense and anticipation, you’ll have something like this:
The game ends when a hapless soul opens the cabinet and places the final empty bottle or can that causes the whole pile to spill out and any available minions to quickly scoop up and bag all the empty bottles before the boss approaches with the attendees for the big meeting in tow. Here is evidence of the carnage:
Good times ’round here at the ol’ cubicle farm.
Oh yes, today’s big loser was in fact yours truly. Hey, I can knit. You can’t win ‘em all.
