Laura, my friend and first office mate from FIFTEEN YEARS AGO dropped me an email from out of the blue. So, I wanted to make her laugh with a funny story of the little blue pig on skis on my desk. (Its funny to ME!)
You see, kind-hearted Laura brought me this piggy bank on returning from a ski trip out west. We were working in Bethesda, MD at the time...sharing a tiny office with no windows. (Laura and dear friend Ashish used to draw windows on our white board to pretend we had windows...sigh.) I think we shared a 286 computer between us.
Anyhow...nice pig huh? Laura bought me the pig, because I constantly needed change to buy sodas. Yeah. Good story. Well, it turned out that Laura was fond of my easy-access coins as well :)
NICELY DONE INDEED.
Anyhow, I always chuckle when I see the pig. Fond memories of a simpler time. [Hi, Laura!]
