The sales department held their annual pot luck lunch in the conference room today. To their credit, they make some tasty dishes and they feed about one hundred hungry employees throughout the afternoon. Most of us come a-runnin'.
It's amazing to see the random nature of the food that is brought to a pot luck. At this one, the choices ranged from ham to meatballs to asparagus to pumpkin pie to pasta.
I generally avoid eating much at these things because my stomach and I have a hate hate relationship. It hates most everything I feed it and generally punishes me severely for eating things that it normally isn't given. I had a few things I could nibble on at this pot luck and it was still too much. I had a stomach ache all afternoon.
On the flip side, I have a co-worker who had more than two plates of food and probably would have eaten more if she wasn't in danger of shredding her Spanx apart. If I ate the amount of food that she does, I'd spend half of my day in the bathroom. She's a tougher woman than I am.
As I've done in past years, I shot a few photos of the folks I work with piling up their plates in the name of camaraderie and free lunch. It's become a holiday tradition.
