Recognition

I was talking to a fellow employee at work a couple of weeks ago. Both of us had just recently started working at this new job, so we were getting to know each other. I found out that he has two children; a son who plays soccer and little league baseball, and a daughter who loves to sing and dance. I also found out that he loves to eat potato chips and/or corn chips with his lunch. Really nice guy. I'm going to enjoy working with him.

He asked me what I like to do in my spare time. I told him about how I love to barbecue, practice Tai Chi, and make homemade brews. I also mentioned that I like to paint signs and post them on the freeway. He looked at me with a puzzled expression and said, "Huh?... Signs? ... What kind of signs?" I told him that they were mostly political signs, to which he replied, "You mean like, 'Bush Lied'?"

I said, "Oh, so you've seen my work." with a smile across my face as wide as a city bus. It always feels good to know that you art is at least looked at, even if it's not always appreciated.

That's a cool story for so many reasons. A new friend, good guy to work with, and he smiled when you told him you made the signs.

He has a new friend, good guy to work with and a new work buddy who makes beer at home. Looks to me like everyone wins in this one. :)
