Posts Tagged ‘Ken got dissed’

Sometimes, as we all know by now, emails can be taken out of context.  What may sound like a promised plan to the receiver might well have been intended as a mere potential suggestion by the sender. This is what happened when Kristen by no means promised that Walk-O-Rama would visit Ken in HSL today, the branch where he was stationed.  It would have been lovely for all, to be sure, but not nearly as awesome as the opportunity to locate and quickly befriend the local celebrity chimps that are rumored to be on our campus.  Sorry, Ken.  We love you but you cannot compete with chimps. Especially if they’re in adorable clothes, as we are picturing them in our highly active imaginations.

Sensing that a walk without Ken as the leader would end in yet another disastrous outing similar to our previous attempt, Bob’s collegial spirit kicked in and he rushed from his very important work to put his awesome wilderness survival skillz to the test.  We went to the only possible place we could imagine a pair of primates being fairly housed on campus, the local wooded preserve.  There were vines for climbing and swinging and even a small shack for moments of quiet emotional reflection, but alas, no chimps could be found in the near vicinity.  We wondered if perhaps this news story was a hoax.  What on earth would a chimp be doing indoors when there was so much wilderness all around us?

Chimps in the workplace? Truly an equal opportunity institution!

Feeling cheated that we got neither the privilege to see Ken nor chimps with or without clothes, we looped around in the woods and headed back to the Library.  With Bob’s superior leadership skills, we all felt like wilderness experts upon exiting the preserve. We deserve badges!

Walk-O-Rama hopes to soon learn more of the whereabouts of these celebrity chimps so we can combine forces and go on an epic walking adventure together.  We can dream, can’t we?

We certainly hope you’ll join us next week, whether this becomes a reality or not.
