A situation developed this morning that demanded a meeting of the entire MySweetCharity staff. Suddenly one of the elves started crying. This stopped all activity. Everyone scurried to see what was wrong. If you’ve ever worked with an elf, you know elves do not cry.
After getting over the initial amazement of seeing elf tears (NOTE: Elf tears look like guacamole, both in color and texture), an emergency meeting was called. What prompted the tears? Maybe it was the heat; maybe it was the stress of the past ten days of disturbing news involving violence throughout the community; maybe it was the weariness of being called non-stop by surveyors about the upcoming election.
Whatever the reason, it was decided that half of the elves would take today off and the rest tomorrow. However, they had to abide by certain rules. They were:
- not to do any chores. Garbage could sit for one day.
- to do at least one nice thing for another person/elf/animal.
- to have no Internet connection for 24 hours. Is there an organization available to help with connection withdrawal?
- to treat themselves like they were their very best friend. Go to a movie. Have their 12 fingers manicured. Go for a ride on their unicorn.
MySweetCharity apologizes for the slow-mo action here today and tomorrow, but we strongly suggest that you consider joining the elves in their period of tear relief.
