Last year, after I threatened to accept an invitation to attend an office Christmas party at a downtown Spokane advertising agency, something happened.
The bosses there realized that I might actually show up. So they decided to cancel plans for the on-site festivities and instead flew the entire staff to Las Vegas. They had the party there.
Hey, I know when I'm not wanted.
So what are they going to do this year? I have no idea.
But perhaps if I go ahead and declare my intention to show up at the 2013 Christmas party, the bosses will decide to fly everyone to Paris. Or something.
So I am making my intentions clear and official: I'm coming.
I figure it's the least I can do for the good people who work there.
