The people I work with rock.
They sent over a basket of “eat this and you’ll feel much better” food (including, much to my amusement since I’m hopping around all day, bunny rabbit-shaped pasta) and a very nice card from everyone wishing me a speedy recovery.
I also enjoy that many of them have similarly twisted senses of humor. The note on the card from my friend Mike:
I hope your foot heals faster than that bear you wrestled. Because if he can walk before you can, he’ll come and find you to finish the job. And that’s not cool.
I am totally changing the story of how I injured myself to “wrestled a bear.” Stephen Colbert would be proud.
