I happen to have a love of hot cocoa. Especially at work where our free drinks are coffee, tea, water and more coffee. I have my coffee at home and (to be honest) can’t stand the coffee at work. It’s way too bitter and unless I take flavored creamer it’s just too much. Plus, I don’t really care to have more than the coffee I have before work. Otherwise I’m ready to collapse around 3 in the afternoon.
I asked my supervisor and the receptionist about ordering cocoa, and when we do order it, to order more than 2 boxes at a time (because we order it when we order coffee and two boxes of cocoa doesn’t compare to the huge box of coffee we get). My supervisor didn’t think it would be an issue and the receptionist said she would ask. I also emailed the person in charge of ordering it to find out if it would be an issue. I mean.. it’s cocoa!
After covering the front desk, getting sucked into a meeting to be told we had another meeting scheduled on Thursday and to ask any questions needing answers I decided to take lunch. Since I had already eaten lunch while covering the front desk I decided to utilize that time for personal computer time (reading and replying to personal email; posting about NaNoBloMo) and what did I find at my desk? A personal box of Swiss Miss Rich Hot Cocoa mix on my desk. My. Own. Box. For work we order the 60 count boxes. But THIS was extra special because it was Mine. And because it was Rich, not milk!
I heart my cocoa faerie, wherever they may be. (And yes, I did thank the faerie!)
