Not in the Office Right Now

One thing I’ve become known for at work is my out-of-office message. I take a few short vacations each year, and each time I get comments about my out-of-office message. I decided it would be nice to keep a record of my messages. Here’s the one that’s up now.

You know, this whole out-of-office message is a lot of pressure, so I’m going to skip it this time around. I’ll be back in the office on January 2.

OK, OK, I’ll leave you with a song.

    Sure. :) The eighth day is a good one, isn’t it? I’m only sad that none of these things were waiting for me when I returned to work today.
