Even Though They Look Tasteful

Inspired by the word of the day; "Chichi". Written at the Baltimore Airport while I waited for my plane to leave Hartford. Fun times! But I got to Houston eventually, which is what counts.

At Peters, Piper and Peterson LLC, everyone dreaded the office Christmas party. Who enjoyed spending an evening in uncomfortable clothing, showing their success to superiors? If they were already that successful, they wouldn’t have superiors. Had some clever organizer found the insight to distribute an anonymous poll asking the partners “Do you want an office Christmas party?” the answer would have universally been “No”. But because there had been one last year, there was one this year, and because there was one this year, everyone had to attend.

And because everyone had to attend, everyone had to attend in style.
