Easy Bake Oven

My friend sometimes works night shifts and depending on the evening, he engages in many ways to keep himself occupied. Like taking naps. And watching movies. Reading books. Playing runescape. Whatever.

Tonight I heard that one of his fellow co-workers likes to bring in a crock pot and make "pulled pork". I have no idea what that is, and have no desire to eat it, but I kinda like the idea of a bunch of techie guys sitting around at 3 am playing online games and eating pulled pork. And then have a nap.

Another co-worker brings in an easy bake oven and makes individual cookies, one at a time, for 25 cents each. He has a sign-up list and I understand it can get long.

I wonder what would happen if the three women I work with were to all come in night after night to get our work done. I suspect we would bake cookies too, and watch movies, and read magazines. And maybe do our toenails and dye our hair and talk about boys we like and boys we don't like. We would make steamed rice and Thai red curry sauce. We would wear our pyjamas and pink slippers. We would bring our pillows too.

Sleepover would take on a whole new meaning. Work would too. I think I could sign up for that.
