On company-provided lunch
So today we have a “team-building” offsite. About 50 of us are going bowling with our VP.
Look, i don’t mind bowling, it can be a lot of fun especially if you’re in the right mood. But nobody is looking forward to this. All offsites i’ve been to have been kind of awkward (except for that one time when we went to Dave & Busters and I got high score at Galaga while Patty played DDR all afternoon). I will, however, put on a good face and try not to be all gauche and shit while i throw my bowling ball into the wrong lane (i’m not exactly gifted at bowling). We shall see if our VP loosens up a bit this afternoon. It should be interesting.
So anyway, we are having lunch provided for us. We had a choice of three:
1. Chili cheese dog, nachos with cheese, corn dog, funnel cake
2. Hamburger, hot dog, french fries or tater tots, cookie
3. Veggie burger, mixed veggies with dip, salad, fries or tater tots, cookie
all three of these options kind of scare me. I decided to play it as safely as i could and went with the vegetarian option (and i am no vegetarian), with tater tots. Because who doesn’t love the almighty tater tot? there’s a decent bar i used to go to way back in the day here in Atlanta called the Highlander, and they serve tater tots. You can’t really go wrong with them.
The chili cheese dog was calling my name, but Oh Man can you imagine the heartburn and subsequent trips to the bathroom? It would not be good. I’d rather do chili cheese dogs at home.
I wish they’d just ordered a bunch of pizzas and called it a day. Pizza is a pretty safe option.
I know i know, i’m grumbling.
And i guess it beats the alternative, which is to stay at work and keep working.
