Microsoft?!?! Part Two

Indulge me in a bit of a story….

As I posted yesterday, Microsoft bought my company. After the shock — and champagne — wore off, I was feeling really lost last night. I’m only 30 and have worked at Danger for 8 years, so you can believe how intertwined my identity is with my job.

Peter had hockey games all evening. I admit to indulging in a bit of self-pity about him not being home on this night when I was feeling depressed.

I woke up early this morning to come in to a meeting and kissed Peter goodbye. “I made you a cheer-up snowman,” he sleepy-mumbled. “I know!”, I said, “I saw your drawing on the fridge whiteboard!”

And then I went outside.

He had filled up the pickup truck bed with snow from the hockey rink and literally made me a snowman in the middle of the night.

    I don’t do romantic, I generally wouldn’t recognise romantic it if it bit me on the backside, but even I recognise that that is awesome with a neon flashing capital A…
    He’s given himself a problem now, though… how will he ever top that?

  12. Durandal says:

    Wow. That is awesome. Simply awesome. *laughs* Sadly, I don’t think I’d ever be creative enough to do something like that. Of course, I also don’t have ready access to a truck-bed full of snow, but anyhow..
    *hat off to Peter*

    Poof is just lucky there wasn’t enough snow to build a giant snow fort in the front yard. πŸ˜‰
