Oh my godddddd. Help me, the crazy puppet guy that works across the hall from me is now working in my office due to construction.

He has brought his puppets. He is concerned about them and how they may inhale construction dust and is asking for masks for them.

Christ, my job is ridiculous.

I was looking for one of my favorite books from when I was younger and I remembered a conversation that I had with Katie once. 

We were reading Fire Bringer which was my favorite book as a child, hands down. We were about a chapter in and Katie looked at me and said this.

"You do realize this book is about World War II but with deer, right?"

So my future was definitely determined for me.
