May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.
2 Thess 2:16-17
Leaving our apartment complex today, one of those big delivery trucks drove by. It had a complicated logo on the side with the company name (I think) emblazoned on the side: WORKPLACE ESSENTIALS. Then, underneath the name in smaller letters, it said RESTROOM SERVICES.
I have to admit that they certainly do provide what I could only describe as a workplace essential.
A man stopped me on the street in Worcester today. He asked me “Can you tell me where is the corrallz?” I said, “The what?” “The cor-ral-z.” I looked at him blankly as he repeated a word that sounded like cohrrahlz several times. Finally he said, “The courh,” and I suddenly understood that he meant the “courthouse.” I pointed him in a direction and went on my amused way.

If this interchange had occurred in Puyallup, perhaps you could have directed him to the fairgrounds.
I must laud the Workplace Essentials website for its delicacy. Although the prominence of the “careers” link on the front page seems overly optimistic.
