We get up to stuff. I mean, Kay lives in … well, I’m not really certain, and Ann comes in late every day because she is surely tired from her late-night Grammar Club meetings or something. Oh, wait: Kay and Ann, please stop reading now. So there’s some, ummmm, downtime in the morning and sometimes those unsupervised-by-adults mornings (which is ALL OF THEM) don’t feel quite like work.
There’s Coffee Time, there’s Pom-Pom Making Time, there’s Rifle Through the Cardboard Time. Sometimes there is Popsicle Time. There’s Second Coffee Time. There’s Spend Twenty Minutes (each) Selecting Music Time. There’s Let’s Make Collages of Ourselves on Famous Album Covers Time.
There’s “Let’s Talk About Plants,” which is a seemingly hour-long daily lecture from Allison and Ashley. Hannah is “updating her operating system,” so she’s of course busy practicing her Lotus Pose in the Relaxation Garden. You really shouldn’t miss Nathan’s “Thirteen Things to Do with a Wooden Pallet” morning tutorials. He also has a lot of Thoughts About Tomatoes. There’s Third Coffee Time. Also, Chris is teaching his popular Croquembouche class in the kitchen … hurry!
Oh, good, we’re up to Let’s Look at Lunch Menus Time. Which always leads to Let’s Fight About Lunch Time, which is then frequently followed by “Which Golden Girl Are You?” (everyone thinks they’re Dorothy, as if).
Whenever we order supplies from Boxapalooza Inc for the warehouse, a free gift is included and it can take HOURS to select the free gift, even though the options are always limited to … NFL koozies or some sort of really specific, serious-looking pocket knife. I dunno what that pocket knife is for, but act surprised when you open your holiday gifts, Ann and Kay! Also, I told you to stop reading.
The mail pickup is fairly early, so there’s always a panic when we look up from our 11am Mozzarella Cheesemaking Session and realize OMG y’all, we have to get all the mail in the bin before the truck gets here, and uh oh he just pulled in right now, OMG OMG OMG. But we manage.
Then Ann pulls in and it’s Look Busy Time. This job is exhausting, let me tell you. I don’t know how we do it. Hey, wait, it’s time to go home. See you tomorrow, kids!
