That’s Me, The Shakespeare Elf

Normally for my lunch break I go for a walk around the block.  Today it’s raining so I cut it short, and returning to the company kitchen I see our CEO is hanging out, talking to some coworkers of mine.  As I’m getting my lunch out of the refrigerator I clearly hear him say, “…the works of Shakespeare…” but I don’t have the context for any other part of the story.

I quickly step up behind him and stand there, waiting for a break.  Everybody sees me but him.

“You rang?” I ask.  “I heard my word.”

He jumps, spins, and says, “Geez you’re like an elf!  Say the magic word and *poof* you appear.”


I’m totally ok with writing that into my job description.
