I sent an email message to our copywriter last week and got an out-of-office message that read:  “I am in Las Vegas until July X.  If I don’t return your call after that time, you can assume that I hit the jackpot and am a millionaire.”  It made me smile…

…and it reminded me of her message for last year’s vacation: “I am in Denver until XX date. If I don’t return your message after that time, you can assume I was eaten by a bear.”

Why do the rest of us have to take ourselves so seriously?  Oftentimes we think that professional levity is an oxymoron.  I think it should be a goal.
