Last weekend I overheard a customer at the salon saying, "I can't wait to go to work on Monday!" ... and for a moment, I felt downright wistful.
Once upon a time I was blessed to feel the same way. Though my job description wasn't in the slightest bit impressive and the hours long ... my co-workers made (most) every day FUN!
... and we never knew who might show up!

Hey, it's OK to laugh.
I do too, when reviewing some of the crazy
hairstyles I once thought were so cute!

Another Bridal Fair .. another "soap" somebody-or-another.
(For those of you keeping track, that year I opted for the tux!)
Prior to the coming of Political Correctness, our department was sometimes affectionately(?) referred to as "The Animal House." In retrospect, those 9 years were some of the best in my life!
But like all fairy tales, the day came when we were compelled to grow up and go our separate ways.
Still, every now and then while watching TV, I can hear my manager advising me the first day on the job, "You'll never watch a commercial in quite the same way again."
You were right, Frank. And by the way, I miss you all!

If you've a moment, won't you drop by Martha's place tonight ... or next week and play along with us at Flashback Friday?
Hugs from Phoenix!
