Still counting down. We are amazed at how fast and incredibly slow this year has gone. Maybe it's been the additional stress everyone has lived with. We have never been so grateful for happy, thriving houseplants in our homes as well as enjoying the outdoors.
You might remember a story a while back where I shared Scott has his own helium tank in the office. He seriously loves balloons. It is the most random thing I can think of about him. And this isn't the small store bought tank. This is the full fledged 5' tall tank sitting in a corner waiting to fill the void of happiness.
The first week of December, Jack Meyers, our Landscape Install Manager, was celebrating three years at FGS! Y'all know how much I love this guy and to celebrate, we decided to put balloons on his desk.
Amanda was up for the challenge as she had never filled balloons before. Off she goes filling three balloons for Jack and one for Scott. When you fill balloons, you always make one extra and tie it to Scott's computer. Not even kidding.
Amanda finishes up and out of nowhere, she throws open my door and says, "Marsha!" At the same moment, a balloon from her bouquet rubs the popcorn ceiling and bursts. This turns into both of us screaming and we manage to successfully startle and disrupt the entire office. I absolutely hate to be startled.
Needless to say, Amanda has lost her balloon privileges. We are going to keep her doing what she does best. Bossing us.
Don't be alarmed. We are still here for all things green and gifty. Having one of those days and need a balloon? Call us. We can blow one up for you while you shop!
