Thanks for the recommendation - I'll get it for myself and others in my group!
Gift giving at work is getting harder and harder. I got a Pope Francis bobble-head from my employees who visited Rome last year, and I love it - but in the back of my mind, I'm wondering what the Catholics in the office think when they walk past my cube and see it on my desk?
There are people who are offended by holidays to begin with, and then messages that come from gifts that I wouldn't have guessed in a million years.
And yet, it's great to be able to think of the person sitting next to me enough to get them something I think will be nice...
Great balance in your writing between real issues and lighthearted humor! I enjoyed the read!
