So, a few weeks ago, as I was dropping off my daughter of 3 years at daycare, she said that Elmo should go to work with me.

So he did.

Since, in chit-chat, it didn't happen unless there are pictures... here are the pictures:



Driving to work. He's still young enough that he has to be in the child seat - so we can be safe!



First stop: COFFEE!



Elmo watches the "magic machine" spurt forth fluid



Elmo's not too sure



We chit-chat with the cube-mates

Then we get to work!



I start with some emails



Elmo finds that a little boring, catches up with Grover



I show Elmo some code
He picks it up really quickly, points out some questionable code I wrote



He does some research



We chat about it

Oh! Time for a staff meeting.



Elmo gets to meet a friend of my coworker - Eeyore!



Talking with the teleworkers



The teleworker annoys Andy a bit



Awkward



Back to work



Elmo convinces me even grown-up needs nap-time.

Elmo wakes up before me...



"Finally! Now I can fix those memory leaks!"



"Uh oh"



Crisis averted



We take a break, I show Elmo the proverbial water cooler



Elmo loves the never-ending bowl of chocolate. Later he tells me it was his favorite part of the trip.



"Elmo, do you know anything about how the word 'a$$-munch' got in this pop-up message?"



Time-out



"Elmo!!!"


Time to go



Bye all!

Nice job! Too bad you can't turn it into a geeklist, somehow, and get a ton of thumbs for your excellent work as a photographer and chronicler.
It would be great if more people could enjoy this.

Thanks!

Actually, I took every photo, with just my cell phone.

Are you saying there are people on BGG who don't read Chit-Chat? That makes no sense.

How fun!
I did the same thing with my daughter's "bunny" and "froggie". They even photocopied their bums. I had my boss chew them out at one time and they definitely used the potty and washed their hands. It was a lot of fun and my daughter was pretty excited to see the pictures.

Careful, now - see, it starts all cute, but watch out for Elmo's dark side. He's secretly after your job!

See how cute it is when they fire you and replace you with Elmo at a third of your salary!

Gotta watch those semase street characters - though I do sympathize a bit. Times are hard, when you're from the 'street'.

That sneaky little ...

That must be the "plan" he was talking to Grover about...

You know, his eyes are open in the napping picture - I wonder if he slept at all! I wonder what he did...

Oh man, and my boss wants to see me tomorrow...
