The Office

I just started watching the hit television series, "The Office," and on one of the episodes that recently aired was the boss, Michael's, birthday. Michael, being a little arrogant, wanted everyone to take part in the planning of his special day. However all of the employees were distracted because one of them was waiting to hear from his doctor as to whether he had skin cancer or not. Michael being irritated at the lack of attention became sarcastic, leading one of the more sassy employees to tell him that no one cares about his birthday because of the situation with the employee waiting to hear from his doctor. Michael immediately pretends to care more about this employee's well being than his own birthday. He decides to make himself a LiveSTRONG bracelet out of yellow card stock and tape. He later raises his fist in support of the distraught employee and calls out "LIVESTRONG!" It turns out it was benign and all was well, and Michael got the birthday he wanted. If you ever get the chance to see this particular episode, I highly recommend it. Hey, It's ok to laugh.... "Laughter does the heart good like a medicine"... Proverbs 11:22
