work story!

i have a desk job at a newspaper. and sometimes i get bored, waiting for obituaries and business briefs to come in, or waiting for some person to return my phone call.

so i end up doing silly things with my hair, like holding them in my hands like i'm going crazy, einstein-style, or putting them up like pippi longstocking. (the things you can do in a cubicle!). today i was doing one of my favorite silly things, which is tying my hair under my chin to make it look like i have a beard, and then looping another dread under my nose for that added mustache effect.

i was typing in an e-mail in this fashion, concentrating really hard, actually on the content, and the editor-in-chief of the newspaper walks by. he says, "hey kim" like he usually does, but then he did a double-take, and he just burst out laughing. it wasn't just laughter, though, it was doubled over, tears streaming down his face laughter.

i'm glad my goofy antics made someone's day (instead of getting me into trouble).

what do you do with your dreads when you're feeling bored or rambunctious?
