Paper balls

Some time ago I started beaning people with paper balls (as in taking a piece of paper and crunching it into a ball) for no reason. I think I started doing it as stress relief for the crap I encounter on an almost daily basis.

This morning I dealt with a lot of crap. More than usual. So in typical fashion I crunched a few paper balls together and starting winging them at people. No one was safe. Co-workers, supervisors, managers.. they're all targets. Sometimes I bean them, sometimes they bean me. Either way, someone's getting beaned.

I bean people with paper balls so much that whenever anyone near hears paper crunching in my cubicle, they know to duck shortly thereafter. I've had to employ the use of crunching paper balls and saving them for later for the surprise factor.

And yes, I'm always the one who starts paper ball fights. Juvenile? Yes. Childish? Probably. Fun? You bet.

The coke machine in Bldg 130, in the side hall on the way to bldg 140 ate my dollar bill. I cannot insert another. The machine seems to be jammed now.
