I’m at a work convention this week… oh how I loath these. Posting is going to be light for the next few days. Kim loves these trips because it’s free and she can spend all her time shopping with her best friend (my business partner’s wife) while I spend my days in a windowless conference room. WAHOO!! I’ll post what I can but trust me… nothing interesting here. And can I just say how blown away I am when people are drunk AT 3:00 IN THE AFTERNOON!??!! Come on people!

So for my post today I’m going to reference my Father’s Day gift my wife gave to me!.(why so early? because she was so excited about it)

CORPORATE FLASHCARDS! It’s a joke that mixes in corporate words or phrases into fake sentences. Here are my favorites…

(old fashioned picture of a girl holding a ball and a boy holding a shovel)
” Your shovel, my ball – I smell synergy

(Family sitting down for dinner)
“Isn’t your new stepmom delightfully plug-and-play?”

(Picture of a boy pushing his little brother in a stroller)
“I can’t believe mom wanted to outsource this.”

(Picture of a receptionist)
“I’m sorry, he’s busy thinking outside the box right now.”

(two ladies filing paperwork)
“I’m not a secretary – I’m a specialist in knowledge management.”

(picture of a boy and a dog)
“I’m really enjoying our face time.”

THANKS CORPORATE FLASHCARDS! I feel more prepared for my presentation and that I’ll be able to on the “low down” … no … “down low” … no doubt!



  1. Travel safe.
