Macro Friday

August 27, 2010
Our company asked all employees to go through a wellness test this morning. In preparation for this “test,” I was asked to fast for eight hours prior to the assessment. Unfortunately, this means that I was NOT able to have my morning dose of Cinnamon Toast crunch…as far as I’m concerned, that’s just not right!Update: My results were pretty awesome.

I told you it was...
