What did you think of the entry? When did you figure it out? (was it Monica Lewinsky?) did anyone pull a good prank on you today?

Yes, a really good one too!

I work in a Law office. Most of the office is windows, and when you first walk off the elevators, you can see right into our lobby. Well this morning I'm walking to the office as normal, and get off the elevators and i see this man sleeping on our couch with my Eeyore beanie in one hand, the wall street journal draped across his back as a blanket, an empty bottle of vodka on the coffee table, and a cup on our brand new rug toppled over.

I immediately went to one of the Attorney's and said, "What's with the guy on the couch?!" he calmly replied with an explination that it was a friend of one of the other Attorney's who got kicked out of his house and needed a place to crash for the night. "Why don't you go wake him up and tell him it's time to go," he said to me.

"Oh no...I'm not going NEAR some drunk guy sleeping on our couch! You've got to be kidding me!!!" was my reply :)

So He walked up front with me, and 4 other people followed me. He started yelling at the guy, "Hey! You! Wake up! Time for you to get going!" but the guy wasn't moving... I asked if I should call the police or something and he just said, "Hmm...maybe he's dead...or maybe he was never really alive?"

It was at that point that I took a closer look and realized that it was a dummy laying on the couch (and another sitting behind the front desk!)

It sure has made for an interesting day though!!! Everyone walks by and does a total double-take when they look in our office...and they then look at me like, "Does she know he's there? Is that a client or something?" ~:)
