Conference Time

So my company’s conference is happening this week. I’m driving to Memphis with the regional director and some other fine people. I don’t know who I’m rooming with but I’ve not had the best luck with roomies. So here’s to better luck this time around.

I’m kinda bummed. On Wednesday we’re having a red carpet night in which people can choose to get all dressed up. I went two days in a row of shopping and had absolutely no luck. So I’ll not be dressing up as I’d hoped.

I don’t like going on long road trips if I’m not driving. I have this issue, you see, I like to be in control. I want to drive, set the temperature, choose the music, and all that fine stuff. But at least I have a good book to read.

More to come…

The Scent of a Drug

drugdogGood morning!

Today started off kinda slow. I couldn’t get my hair to behave and then I couldn’t find my damn keys. I ended up being 2 minutes late for work. Fortunately, things a re a little more relaxed here, thank goodness.

My morning was a bit messed up thanks to the ‘fire drill’. That is code for drug dogs are visiting. (of course everybody knows that already so technically is it really a ‘code’.)

I got to do the walk through with a four year old trained drug sniffer. (Beautiful dog too.) Hagar is a very smart dog, trained in three months. He can pick up the scent of any illegal substance, bombs, and guns. I wish I could take a picture of him, but oh well.

After the search I got to participate in a demonstration. A tiny silver air and water tight canister was hid by yours truly. So, I didn’t technically get to touch the substance but I still felt the intense desire to wash my hands afterward. LOL Both dogs picked up the scent so quickly. It was amazing to watch their behaviors when they had found the scent.

It was quite an experience, that’s for sure.  Now, however, it is time to get back to work. 🙂

Cheers, Michala
