Well, so far, the higher temps this week haven't been as bad as expected -- the humidity isn't quite as bad as expected, so it doesn't feel as nasty.
Today, Friday and Saturday are supposed to be the really hot days, which the bouncing temp forecasts have settled on being 93/94/93, last I checked
Hubby got roped (or rather, railroaded) into an employee "team building" afternoon in a few weeks. It's more or less a bunch of folks from work
getting together somewhere on the company tab and eating & chatting to get to know each other & understand each other's jobs better (superiors &
subordinates alike) so they can work more smoothly together as company employees.
The catch is, hubs was railroaded into being one of the chaperones, so he can't imbibe at all, which I feel sorry for him for -- everyone else can,
except the sorry saps tasked with chaperoning (this seems entirely inappropriate to mention after subject of the last few pages...)
They haven't quite nailed down where they're going to host this at yet, but there's PLENTY of places around Grand Rapids for it, event halls/venues
Hubs is just plain unhappy he has to do it at all, it's on his first day off after the workweek & he'd rather relax at home. I really can't blame him,
that would irritate me, too.
He's mildly interested in seeing if it ends up being a conference hall kind of thing at one of the hotels or an event hall, because that would be
catered. His work doesn't cheap out with catering, they feed their people well. The last time work went whole hog on catering, it was AT work for
their Thanksgiving employee appreciation meal, they overestimated amounts and had to parse out leftovers to people who wanted to take them home. He
ended up bringing home about 20 lbs worth of leftover Beef Wellington, among other things, lol.
