Note, I did not say Friday night, just Friday. And just in case you missed the sarcasm, this is in no way typical.
The day started out in regional meetings at a hotel, but then around noon we all broke out and had a corporate picnic at the Windy City Fieldhouse. We were shuttled there by bus from the hotel, and there was food, beer, and activities. Having beer was definitely a change from the University life, that’s for sure.
So, we’re having a good time, things are winding down, one of the buses has left, and we start playing flippy-cup with the remainder of the 2 kegs. Talk about a team building experience 🙂
Anyways, on the way back (sometime around 4-4:30) we decide to hit Octoberfest downtown. Somehow (actually, I know exactly how), a good chunk of us ended up wearing wigs. Coworker Joel and I were sporting sexy mullet wigs the whole night. In fact we may actually get in the paper, and the band at Octoberfest acknowledged us (along with a good part of the crowd at the same time). Needless to say the debauchery continued with wigs until around 1am. Good times, that is, until I was called at 7:30 this morning for work related things. Doh!
