The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]

As Bad As Monday Morning May Be, At Least You’re Not As Bad As This …

Yes, that’s me.

It’s not totally random because a few weeks ago, the planning department at R/GA held an impromptu Elton John party.

Though I’m not quite sure why we did it to be honest.

Anyway, we went to town with it …

Elton glasses … Elton inspired drinks … Elton boa’s … Elton masks … even an Elton John impersonator.

I’m not sure which was my favourite part of fake Elton’s performance.

On one hand, it was pretty hilarious when he loudly announced through the PA system “Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome Elton John to the stage” and then we saw the post room door [which was doubling as his dressing room] rattling madly as he tried to get out without realizing he had to press the unlock button.

Though – all things considered – I probably prefer the moment he ran out of Elton John songs and decided to start singing The Proclaimers. [See the video below]

But back to that photo …

While you might think the sight of me on a stepladder wearing an Elton John mask is the worst thing you can imagine, let me remind you of the time I wore a mask of the Queen for my first ever photo with my son.

See, nowhere near as bad.

That said, I acknowledge it is pretty tragic which means – in comparison – your Monday is far less horrific.

You’re welcome.

I’ve always admired how you stay in the background and never want the limelight. I’ve also respected how you never force your team to do anything they don’t want to do and absolutely never use their embarrassment for your own enjoyment.

In all seriousness, you might whip up chaos and mischief wherever you go, but out of that comes creativity, ambition and loyalty. Not to mention healthy doses of trouble.

Funny, someone referred to Otis as that too. Guess he is my son. Poor thing.

Funny how a planning department would call an organised party impromptu.

I find you wearing shoes more unsettling than seeing you wearing an Elton John mask.
