Last week the company I work for threw an “Employee Appreciation” event.I don’t usually go to those things.It’s not that I don’t like them.I just tend to have other stuff going on and can’t make it.This year I decided to make an appearance.
The party had a carnival theme, and the first thing every associate had to do when they entered, was pick a little yellow duck out of a small wading pool.Some of the ducks had numbers on the bottom which corresponded to door prizes on a nearby table.In addition to those prizes, there were a few “grand prizes”:A big TV, a Play Station III, and a Kindle Fire.
I didn’t expect to win anything, but here is what was on the bottom of my duck…
I had no idea what a Kindle Fire even was, so when I got home I asked Hubby if we should give it to someone for Christmas?He said I should wait and see if I liked it.He was right.I have been playing around with it a lot.It is so much fun!!!It’s like a junior version of the iPad.I haven’t used it to read any books yet.I have used it a lot for searching the web, and Little Guy uses it to read children’s books, to “play the piano” and a few other child friendly activities.
So, in case you are wondering… I won’t be giving it away for Christmas, and in future years I’ll definitely be going to those appreciation parties.
