A j-o-k-e

I urgently needed a few days off work, but I knew the boss would not allow me to take leave. I thought that maybe if I acted 'crazy' then he would tell me to take a few days off.
So I hung upside down on the ceiling and made funny noises.
My co-worker asked me what I was doing. I told her that I was pretending to be a light bulb, so that the Boss would think I was crazy and give me a few days off.
A few minutes later the Boss came into the office and asked 'What are you doing?' I told him I was a light bulb.
He said, 'You are clearly stressed out. Go home and recuperate for a couple of days.'
I jumped down and walked out of the office.
When my co-worker followed me, the Boss asked her 'And where do you think you're going?'
She said, 'I'm going home too. I can't work in the dark.'

Back to work tomorrow after our half-term break, I might just try this one, although I doubt my boss would notice.

Nea! It's been too long since we were in touch. My fault, I'm sure. I hope the Spring is bursting all round you. It's still wintry here.
