So, a normal Friday afternoon at work does seem to last much longer than any other afternoon. But a Friday afternoon in which you have a brand new Wii sitting in a box next to your desk is truly interminable.
Erica had today off work, as she does every other Friday, and we had plans to meet for lunch. She called me in the late morning to say "I'm at the mall, the GameStop has Wii consoles in stock, I owe you money for that plane ticket, should I buy one?" The answer was, of course, YES. So when she came to the office for our lunch appointment, she delivered my new toy. And, oh good gracious, this day will not end. Considering the past two hours, I have a feeling that the remaining two before I get to leave are going to feel like a couple of days. Sigh.
The weekend is looking to be social and fun. As far as I'm concerned, it can start any time now.
