This Friday, instead of spending time sitting behind a dispatch console and handling the 911 medical crises of the City of Norwich, I'll be wandering south towards Niantic and the home of a co-worker who is hostessing this year's Dispatch/Scheduling Christmas Get-Together. We started doing the get-togethers several years ago and normally hold them at my house but due to the limited parking, small size, and hills that one has to surmount to get to my house, we're changing locales this year. Which is okay by me as that means I don't have to clean the house ... or overly clean the house which is what I tend to do when company is coming over.
My supervisor, Matt, is generally in charge of the food as he works part-time for a catering company and brings us such delicacies as macaroni & cheese with lobster, marinated flank steak, several types of bruschetta, and the like. The rest of us bring dessert and beverages and a fine time is had by all outside of the confines and stress of the dispatch center. Trust me - this is something that we all need at least once a year and I'm really looking forward to Friday night's gathering.
That - then - brings me to this post's question -
Are you attending any holiday parties this year?
