Jacob came to work with me today. He was so excited about it, but the novelty wore off after about an hour, and now he’s bored. Poor kid.
Considering the boredom, he is remarkably well-behaved, and has been showing off for my coworkers. He told Rachael from Finance, “you talk funny like my mom’s friend Anna!” (Anna, of course, is British, and Rachael is Nigerian but lived in London for quite a long time.) He also was cornered by the SVP of Sales, who insisted that “girls are cool, but boys are the bomb! Right Jacob?” Jacob, bless him, refused to give him “pounds,” and also refused to parrot the sexist motto.
Bring on the weekend!
