Dear Diary,

Today I made my boss stab himself in the neck with a pen. It was a green pen. Then I laughed so hard I had tears streaming down my face. It was the first time I've ever made another person stab himself in the neck with a pen. It was a very special day.

Is this what you showed me when you were here? Because... that was awesome. Yet, I had no idea you could make your boss go suicidal. You have to send me the link to that.

Nope. The game is www.whackyourboss.com

But today my REAL boss stabbed himself in the neck with a green pen. It was hilarious.

The longer story is this: I approached him at his desk to give him a report, and as he didn't see or hear me coming, I startled him. As I laughed at him (because he is forever startling US in our cube, and we scold him for it), he explained that he just saw me out of the corner of his eye, and didn't know if I was going to -- then he picked up a pen and playfully jabbed it to his neck, to mimic ME stabbing him (because I think he's slightly afraid of me, which is always good) -- but he thought the cap was on the pen and miscalculated and actually stabbed himself in the neck with the pen. No blood, he really just poked himself. I asked him if he was ok and he said he was, and then I laughed. Then Mike in the next cube asked if I was scaring Bill, and I said, "No. I didn't have to do anything. He just stabbed himself in the neck with a pen." The lesson in all this is: "Don't startle Bill. He will stab himself."

Ahahahahahahahaha!!!! I can't believe he actually stabbed himself. That story made my evening. Though, it would be even funnier if your boss wasn't a good guy.

And here I was, thinking you had mastered The Force. I'm a little disappointed.

It is good to have a goal each day in the workforce.

The boss mimicked you stabbing him all wrong. He probably (?!) knows this now, but fear could drive him over the edge next time. Cap all the pens in the office with super glue *nods*

wow you stabbed someone without having to stab someone, that's a feat in itself!
