Stood Up

Interesting day at work today...too many meetings...made good updates to our Briar Cliff University        Facebook page...did my half hour in the Alverno Fitness Room...encountered a student while I was walking back to my was the conversation...

Student: "I borrowed your office chair."
Me: "Okay...why did you do that?"
Student: "I'm moving my stuff from my dorm room in Alverno across campus to my summer room in Noonan."
Me: "And your using my office chair?"
Student: "I needed something with wheels."
Me: "Okay" (I really don't need to SIT at my desk.)
Student: "I'll bring it back."
Me: "I know you will - thanks for letting me know."
Five minute later - me STANDING and working at my rings...
Me: "Career Development this is Nancy"
Co-Worker in office across campus: "Are you missing your desk chair?"
Me: "Well...technically it was borrowed - not sure I would classify it as missing...why do you ask?"
Co-Worker: "I thought I recognized it! It is sitting outside my office." (It is a VERY OLD solid oak chair with a bright red seat patio style seat cushion.)
Side-note: her office is in the basement of the summer dorm housing - across campus - where there are NO residence rooms. What the heck was my chair doing down there?!
Three minutes later I walked down the hall to borrow someone ELSE's chair and there sits my chair...soaking wet from the pouring rain...KIDS!

Speaking of kids - here is a kid-card - or maybe an adult 'young at heart' card. All layers of the card are from the Paper Studio Oops-A-Daisy collection.
