D rawing stick figures on a sticky note, while taking a call

I imagine who's beside me, by the shoes in the stall

S omebody sent an e-mail to complain about coffee

T omorrow's finally Saturday, when, it's all about me.

R oaming through the office cubicles, to see who's still here

A nother holiday is coming, so everyone disappears

C an't reach my boss to ask her, if I can leave early too

T oo bad I can't hit the lottery, crying emoji, "boo-hoo"

I guess I'll write another story, since there is nothing to do

O pened another epic challenge, from Vocal and crew

N ow I better get back to it, I'm a professional, you see. I write when time allows, and for today, time is free.

  • Kelli, has this challenge got you distracted? If you're alone at the office with nothing to do & just killing time, you're doing it well. Loved the acrostic. Editorial note: The line "R oaming through the office cubicles, to see whose still here", "whose" should be "who's".
