Fun at work...at MY expense!

Okay, here it goes. My friend/payroll processor in Montana sent me a Christmas present. We have had MANY discussions about moose in Montana. I'm quite fond of moose...I even have a moose stocking! Anyway everyday for the last week, she has asked if I received my package from her. Well today I finally got it. Wrapped ever so snuggly in the box was my own moose! Hot damn I love me some moose! Marty Moose was the name I gave him. Well, I showed off my moose proudly to others in my office. While some of them may have received Christmas cards, flowers or candy, I got a whole moose...can't beat that. While I was working away from my desk, someone moose-napped Marty Moose! I was devastated. Then "IT" came. It was a ransom note and a photo of Marty...who was practically hog-tied...and he was blindfolded! I continued getting notes throughout the day telling me to do things or that he would be taking a "5 story dive". I had to seek out 8 different co-workers to see if anyone had "messages" for me. I also had to beg for candy...as that was part of the ransom...yes, really! Once I received the 8 messages, I had to unscramble the letters to tell me where to take the candy. Then I waited. I then was brought a "confidential" envelope from our director...once I opened it, I was able to rescue Marty. He was in a cabinet with some "female" products in the ladies restroom! He's safe now after the moose abuse. He's vacationing after his dreadful day. Below are some pictures and a nice song my husband, Mark, wrote to the tune of the Beverly Hillbillies. Feel free to sing along.



Gonna tell you a story,
‘bout Marty the Moose.
Came to Louisville,
looking to cut loose,
next thing he knew,
he was tied up like a shoe.
Whisked away,
blindfolded,
and humiliated too.
Embarrassed that is,
red-faced,
so ashamed.

So the next thing he knew,
he was locked up with some “things.”
Some round, some flat,
some even sported wings.
Marty thought to himself,
“Hey I need to get away!”
Then a chick named Lisa,
came to save the day.
A hero she is,
a Supergirl,
A #1.
