An effort to keep up with the changing times. redux.

There is a phenomenon sweeping the world, at least the parts with cameras, and internet access, and a touch of vanity.  It is called a "Selfie."  It involves finding a situation, or look that captures the essence of your being, and focuses the strength of your personality into a moment, frozen in time.  It is a unique opportunity to make that one, split second of achievement immortal.  Or you could just snap one you find flattering, there is a chance that is what this is about, more research needs to be done.

We here at Life Explained like to think we are up with all of the latest trends.  And as the head of the "Cool, New Stuff" department it is my responsibility to make sure we are compliant with all of the "hip, happening fads" in America, everywhere, really, except places that are not cool, or have a lot of spiders.  You have to draw the line somewhere.

So, I snapped a couple of Selfies yesterday, and thought I would share them with you, the Life Explained Nation.

"Don't worry, under this new system, you no longer have to
cough uncontrollably when calling in sick.'
 To the left is a picture I took while explaining the new attendance policy to my staff.  It was a fruitful meeting, we covered a lot of ground, and I think they really understood the need for a change.  And we had donuts, really good donuts.  Everyone said it was one of the best meetings of the year.  Even better than the meeting about how to use the new color copier, where we only had bagels.
"Look, up in the sky, it's a bird, it's a plane,
no, it's me!!!"






The top secret Life Explained headquarters is in a very old, very large building.  Obviously, as with any top secret facility it is difficult to justify calling in pest control companies.  So, sometimes we see a bug, or two.  Some of them are so large, that they may have helped build the structure over 100 years ago.  To the right is a selfie I snapped after wrestling one of these monsters out of the office area, down the stairs, and out the back door.  Unfortunately, it was so angry it stole my car and drove it in to the river.  I did love that car, too.

Stay tuned, we will have more selfies as soon as we do more amazing stuff.
