My husband called me at work today at 1:47 pm. There were children squealing in the background and he announced that he'd decided to take the day off and hang out with the kids. So far they'd played soccer, run errands and staged their own talent show. They had decided to go to the zoo next and wanted to know if I'd like to come.
I didn't even call anyone to ask if I could leave. I just hit the power button on my computer, grabbed my keys and headed out no questions asked. On my way out, I told the lady that sits outside my office and joking calls herself my unofficial receptionist that I'd been invited to the zoo and it was an offer I couldn't refuse.
