The Empire Strikes Back

I've lost a battle in the Fishbowl Wars.

Dang.

We all got an email from the Big BIG Boss today. We have groups touring our building starting tomorrow. So, among many other things, she said our windows had to be paper-, plastic-, and cardboard-free. Our "suite" is full of the plastic-wielding Fishbowl Warriors. Dang.

The Little Boss said we could hold our retreat until tomorrow, before the tours. We settled on a time to retreat in unison. And when to begin the charge again.

Then, the Big BIG Boss saw the Little Boss. And the order came down to retreat immediately.

It was tough on some of the Warriors. One had to leave to compose himself. (Then again, he always has to leave to compose himself.)

So, the battle was lost, but there's still hope for the War. They are still saying the mini-blinds are on the way. Could be propaganda, though. We'll see.

(Dang.)

Thank you! It was a great birthday. My kids spoiled me :o) Boyfriend did, too, as we have an anniversary in the same week.

It's funny what you think of as great anniversary gifts as life marches on. We got bowling stuff, so we could save on rentals!

(Not that I'm good at bowling. I'm TERRIBLE.)

And the Fishbowl War is still being waged! We will triumph! ;o)
