Holiday Cards-Part II
Last week I confessed my procrastination when it comes to writing holiday cards. I never send them, even though I buy some every year with the most organized of intentions. Apparently this post resonated with one person in particular: my boss.
My new boss. Actually my boss's boss. We are really just getting to know each other, and there we were yesterday, sitting at a Starbucks near our homes, for one hour, writing out Christmas cards.
Displaying any lack of organizational skills to one's boss had, I realized, the makings of an awkward situation, but procrastinators quickly find common ground. We were soon chuckling when she said: "Boy is this person gonna be surprised when he actually receives a Christmas card from me." We competed in the categories of who could write more cards in an hour (her), who could write more in each card (me) and whose handwriting was worse (tough to say).
Make no mistake: we did not complete this chore and happily cross it off our list. We didn't have stamps, for starters (details, details!), and we both intend to slip a photo of our children inside each card and I for one, have not developed the film yet (so typical!).
But it was a start. And it does prove that a single hour in a day can be so productive that you needn't worry about doing much for the other 23.
