I can’t sport the Orange and Black today at the office, but Opening Day needs to be honored. I’m following baseball tradition and giving everyone at work nicknames.
Adding “ie” to the end of people’s given names is a popular tactic among big leaguers, so I’ve followed suit this morning. It hasn’t worked out so well. I came to work and greeted the “secretarie,” which wasn’t nearly as bad as calling my superior “bossie.” The subsequent slap on the butt didn’t help things any.
Here’s hoping the Birds have better luck than I’ve had.
