My secretary is rad. I believe I’ve mentioned this once or twice before. Really, she is one of the only good things in this cesspool of an office I work in. Truly.
She is a collector of odd office supplies. Her desk is covered with all sorts of odds and ends and she is just a little bit kooky. Which I love about her. She is also one of the sweetest and most giving people I’ve ever met. She’s the type that will see something in a store, think of you, and just buy it for you and give it to you. (I do that, too. Probably why we get along so well). She’s also the kind of person who will notice that you’ve been really down lately and fix you up a little “office brightener” by way of a plant. She thought it might lift my mood. Plus, she assured me that this plant is “unkillable.” To which, of course, I responded, “challenge . . . accepted!”
So far it’s still
kickin’ breathing, however . . . I have mad plant killing skillz. It’s a gift, really. So, it’s really only a matter of time. Sorry planty!
But, putting aside the unrealistic gifting of a living thing to moi, she is really the sweetest person and I am so lucky to have her working with me. So, accordingly, when I made my last foray into Target, I saw something that totally reminded me of her:
As you can see, it is a Desk Set, complete with Tape Dispenser & Multi-Pen/Highlighter. Of course. It’s cute, functional and a little bit kooky . . . just like my secretary!
This is what it looks like all out and about and set up:
Of course, being my smartass secretary, when I gave this to her, she asked me, “did you get this for me because she has a big butt just like mine?” To which I replied, “Yes, absolutely. I saw this and immediately thought, ‘hey look! It’s my secretary’s big butt!'”
So, you are probably wondering right about now . . . yeah, yeah, yeah, lovefest for your secretary, gift buying, yada yada, why do I care? Well, I’ll tell you why you should care . . . because I am also giving away one of these fab items to one of you!!
That’s right!! I didn’t just buy this for her, but for one lucky winner as well. I just thought it was completely awesome, and it also works and looks adorable on the desk. And, who doesn’t love one of those multi-pen/highlighter combinations??
Right-o. So, what do you have to do to win this highly coveted and most awesome prize? Well, your eternal love and devotion would be good, but in addition to that, how about a comment below that tells me about a time that someone did something really nice for you to brighten your otherwise crappy day/life. Tell me about someone like my secretary that, despite a sometimes hellish existence, will do something to make you smile. Story time, peeps.
I’ll draw a winner in a couple weeks. I will also probably throw in some other
random thing that I have lying around truly exquisite and unique item! Good luck, all.
