It's Thursday afternoon, the mid-afternoon sugar rush is wearing off and we start to get a bit fidgety. Looking around for something to entertain us for a few minutes we spy an empty desk. It turns out that T-Man took the day off. Now, we don't know where he went or why, but we did know that his desertion needed to be punished in some way.
Of course, we can't just hide his chair or PC monitors. We've done that before (*glares at andrew_*). We needed something a little bit more creative. Well, one thing we did have was a pile of toilet paper. So, being the mature and responsible adults that we are, we TP'd T-Man's desk.
Now, we didn't just toss toilet paper willy-nilly all over the cube and make a mess. That lacks style and finesse. We wanted this prank to show that not only were we thinking of T-Man while he was away, but that we cared enough to really do the job right. So we wrapped everything on his desk in TP. Pens, mugs, empty coke cans, action figures, telephone, monitor, mouse, dry erase markers etc.
We even got the inflatable kangaroo Jafo sent us years ago into the act.
Here are the results:
A wide shot of the whole desk. Yes, we mummified the kangaroo and wrapped it to the chair. Oh, and if you look closely at the top right of the photo, you'll see we wrapped the doors to his overhead cabinets too.
Close-up shot of his desk. Each can was individually wrapped. The big package in the middle of the screen is T-Man's giant blue mug.
Keyboard, mouse, pens, even his pad of post-it notes.
When I go on vacation next month, I'm taking everything off of my desk and locking it away!
