And speaking about Roger Von Oech, I may have to sue you, my friend!
The Ball of Whacks you sent over has become so addictive, it has taken away my focus during important meetings as I fiddle incessantly with the red pyramids. I enjoy the satisfying "thwack" the pieces make when they stick together so much that I ignore other sounds, like phone calls or people knocking on my office door. What's worse, I turn into a wildebeeste whenever my employees whine and ask for "their turn" with the orb.
Productivity is down, I may not hit my Q4 numbers...
But I'm coming up with more good 'n' creative ideas, so maybe there's something to the side effects.
