I got to work this morning, still suffering from a pinched nerve in my neck (or whatever it turns out to be-I've got a doctor's appointment Friday morning), doped up on painkillers just to make it through the day. (just over-the-counter stuff, no need for concern!)
In the mail room, where we sign in each morning, what should I see but a box of fresh apple fritters, sitting on the table in the very spot which always means: "Help yourself!"
So, being as apple fritters are one of my favorite things, I did just that, and wrapped one up in a couple of paper towels for break time later on in the morning.
Since I had hastily prepared my lunch this day-A chunky peanut butter and grape jelly sandwich, and since there was not much chunky peanut butter to be had (I believe The Sue has been in the peanut butter jar!) I was grateful to have been gifted with one of my favorite treats.
I don't really call them apple fritters, though, ever since one of my granddaughters coined the term AppleBoss. Now both of us call them AppleBoss. I just like the ring of it!
I even ask for them by that name at the 7-11, which usually brings a raised eyebrow from the clerk.
So, if you've got a business, and can do a little something extra for your employees from time to time, by all means, do it! Believe me, they will appreciate it
Thanks for the AppleBoss, Boss!
The pinched nerve was hangin' on my neck
Like an Albatross,
But, when I got to work, right there on the table
Sat a warm, fresh AppleBoss!
