Best Laid Plans...

I had a great idea for a practical joke and I was really excited because normally I'm not all that clever.

Last Thursday when Beth, Charlotte, and I were stuffing folders for the Registration Training Meeting on Friday she let it slip that for the past two weeks she and two other coworkers were playing a game with clothes. I knew that I had been making a lot of "Hey, Daryl and Jasmine are both wearing purple today!" comments but we have 40 people in our office and there are only seven colors in the rainbow so it's not extraordinary for two people to be in the same color and I wrote it off. But no, they had been in cahoots and they were picking out colors. Ha!

So Charlotte offered to let me in on the game so I could play with them. I said "Wouldn't it be funny if you didn't tell Daryl and Jasmine that I knew about their game and I just kept showing up in the right color?"

Last Monday I danced into the office wearing the closest I had to baby blue thinking "How brilliant am I?" Oddly enough Cindy and Karyn just happened to be in blue, too. "Great!" I thought. "It won't even seem like I'm out of the ordinary. This is perfect! Better yet, they are used to me pointing out when people are in the same color, this will be easy." So when Daryl showed up in blue I said "Hey look! Cindy, Karyn, you, and I are all in blue today!" and then set out to walk away leaving it at that. But she called to my retreating back "And Charlotte and Jasmine will be in blue today, too. We've been playing a game for the past weeks wearing the same color..."

So there went my brilliant plan. Sigh!

Man, I was so disappointed when it didn't work out!!! I was so excited about the big reveal I was going to do on Friday. Alas! I seriously hope I get another shot at something like that.
