If you know me, you know I make my real living in the corporate world. I’m involved in implementing multinational, global programs that span a bunch of functions and generally deal with technology development–something that probably sounds a bit more … er … glamorous than maybe it is. Dunno. It’s what I do, so maybe I just consider it a bit routine.
But, while I’m being all grown up on the outside, I do my best to retain this small sense of the absurd or the geeky, or maybe just infantile, about me in that I tend to keep a few toys hanging around my office. For example, I’m know to occasionally pull out my radio controlled tarantula when the occasion calls for it. I have matchbox cars on my shelf, and a toy train on a table in the back wall of my office.
As final proof, I note that my birthday is coming up relatively soon, and the team–knowing that I was going to be off this week–decided to give me a bit of a surprise party last week. My present? A comic book balloon and a cool set of transformers.
Proof positive you can take the kid out of the silliness, but you can’t take the silliness out of the kid.
Or something like that.
Definitely cool. 🙂
