    It Figures

    The owners of my workplace have decided that this year, instead of a company picnic or a trip to an amusement park, the annual Family Outing will be at an upcoming Sunday Pirate game. (In the "all you can eat" section, to boot). Free tickets to any employee & their immediate family who want to go.

    So what could go wrong?

    Turns out that they picked the same Sunday that the Boss & Little Miss Field Day's Church is going.

    And the Church Choir will be singing the National Anthem before the game. (Guess who's IN the choir? You get two guesses, by the way)

    Sitting (we think) ALSO in the AYCE section.

    Why is this a problem? Because our son and his family are coming too... and we'd really wanted to sit the whole family together. This could prove... an interesting exercise in logistics. (That, and we're already committed to buying the tickets through the church)

    Maybe the rest of you should get some silk robes, and join the choir. All you have to do is lip sync, and you are good to go.

    Issue has been resolved.

    Work has told me that everyone can have a ticket on their dime. So we will all sit together.

    The Boss & Little Miss Field Day will still buy the two tickets they already committed to. They'll sing with the choir, and then after a short time, join the rest of us. After all, the company seats ARE in the All You Can Eat section...

    Anyone who wants to come and hear the ladies sing is more than welcome! But you will have to buy your own tickets...
