Thankful For a "Fun" Job

One of the perks of my new job is a monthly "fun club" activity, planned by the actual Fun Club. Yes, it's a real thing; a Fun Club. At work. Try to contain your jealousy.

Anyway, this month's Fun Club activity took place yesterday. We gathered as a group and watched Charlie Brown's Thanksgiving. For realz. Ten adult women sat around a conference table and watched an animated classic, on purpose.

It. Was. Awesome.

Granted, we spent the entire movie analyzing the characters (Lucy has some serious anger issues, y'all), but, it was a nice break from working with actual real life troubled kiddos. Especially this time of year.

Speaking of this time of year; we are headed to Mayberry later today to spend Thanksgiving with my family. I am really looking forward to seeing everyone and would probably have been desperate to get out of town by now if it weren't for fun activities at work.

Which, when you think about it; is precisely why my employers instituted the practice to begin with.

Well played, New Job. Well played.
