I got to work this morning to find an e-mail from the biggest instigator of food events announcing November 9th as bread and muffin day. We were all to bring in bread and muffins and have a bit of an informal competition. All the submitted entries would be available in the Report Writer's office (where I reside all day).
I picked up the phone and placed the call.
"Can we move bread and muffin day to November 11th?" I asked.
"I just sent the announcement."
"We are not having bread and muffins in my office on the 9th," I said.
"Because I am having the dreaded colonoscopy on the 10th and I cannot eat anything all day on the 9th. Putting all those goodies in my office will happen over my dead body. So what do you say we do it on the 11th?"
An e-mail with the new date for bread and muffin day was issued forthwith!
