There are two things I cherish about my job.
1. The company that I represent and the product I sell.
2. And the people I work with.
As most of you know, the people you work with can make or break your workday. Therefore, if you really enjoy your coworkers, it makes going into work so much more pleasurable.
My coworkers and I are very diligent in our jobs, but we like to have fun at the same time.
I sincerely believe that when people bring humor into their workplace, it makes for a more enjoyable work experience, so you produce more.
You will often hear laughter coming from our department because we’re forever cracking each other up with funny stories or crazy shenanigans. And we're fortunate, because we all seem to enjoy a similar sense of humor.
I also need to add here that these same people were extremely loving, caring and kind to me when my mother passed away last November, both emotionally and financially. While I was gone for two weeks, they all pitched in and supported and promoted my business so that my figures wouldn’t go down during my absence.
I feel very blessed to work with such an awesome group of ladies and gents, because the business I'm in, you don't find that too often.
I’ve always had a secret desire to put on a tutu and dance in the ballet, Swan Lake.
Yeah, I know...I ain't right.
To me there is something so thrilling about the feel of a tutu around my waist, as I perform 32 continuous fouettés en tournant without getting dizzy and throwing up.
Now mind you, I’ve never danced ballet in my life. And because I’m 57 years old and MALE, I will probably never get a chance to put on a tutu and dance in ANY ballet, let alone, Swan Lake.
Last Friday my dream came true, when I was finally able to wear a tutu and dance to the music of Swan Lake.
One of the gentlemen I work with is involved in theater as a choreographer and show director, who just so happened to have a few TUTUS at home, which he keeps on hand as costumes for the dancers in his shows.
And when he told me that he would bring TWO tutus in last week (one for me and one for my coworker, Lisa) I reacted with such excitement and enthusiasm, you would have sworn he was bringing me the Holy Grail.
On the day that the tutus arrived, Lisa and I INSTANTLY put them on and started posing, twirling, and dancing as if we were prima ballerinas.
But as you will see in the video clip, I’m MUCH prettier than Lisa.
A bunch of my coworkers took out their iPhones and snapped photos and video clips of the two of us.
OMG…it was SO. MUCH. FUN.
Here is a short clip I put together with photos, video and music of prima ballerina, Lisa and Ron, getting ready to perform, Swine Lake.
