We had our usual staff breakfast in my office this morning. The tradition dates back to when we first moved into the building, almost eight years ago. Since we now had a full kitchen, and a very nice boardroom, our staff suggested we have a breakfast on the last Friday of the month, and that day would also be Casual Friday, a relaxation of our dress code. One or more of us makes breakfast, usually a variation of bacon and eggs. Always bacon. It is a requirement. Today our office manager made French toast and bacon, with help from our director of graphic design.
We sit around and talk, small talk, idle chatter, and business, company stuff. Today was one of those rare occasions when there was so much company talk, on projects and new products, that we went beyond our usual two hours, and talked almost until noon. It was a very productive session.
