So – for all you folks out there who have been on the edges of your seats waiting for updates about the Makers Tiles, I am here to do your bidding. For the rest of you, Matthew will be posting about babies and dogs and bunnies tomorrow, so you can come back then.
We recently received proofs of the trimmed tiles in the mail.
Matthew cannot be charged with this kind of responsibility. As CEO of this organization, I thought it necessary to appoint a supervisor to spearhead the proof acceptance project. My usual trusted aide had unfortunately been assigned other duties for the day.
And so, for lack of better options, I had to appoint the new guy.
It seemed that right from the start, he took his job very seriously. He obviously saw that this was a real opportunity to climb the company ladder. While Matthew dilly-dallied opening up the package, you could see his new supervisor seething with impatience.
“Quit your ham-handlin’ and show me those cards! We don’t have all day!” he finally cried. Matthew complied, trying to keep positive in his newfound position at the bottom of the corporate totem pole.
“Yes, yes, ah, yes,” said the new supervisor, supervising to the fullest extent of his capacities.
“Now, give them to me, so I can take all of the credit for your hard work,” he said, taking the final leap into successful coporate management.
He’ll be running Goldman Sachs in no time.
The proof cards turned out to be slightly jiggered, so we’ve been told that the very best production person will be on press in Hong Kong to make sure that our cards are properly printed and trimmed. Please, everyone, keep your fingers crossed, because if anything is slightly awry, it will totally mess up the whole object of the game. And if you are successful with your fingers-crossing, we might have some entry-level openings for you in our corporation. Just hope that you don’t get assigned to the new guy. He’s a real ball-buster.
