Every other Friday is what we call treat Friday. A special day because it means that there will be chocolate in the afternoon. Friday morning are usually filled with the debate as to whether or not this particular Friday is treat Friday if whether we will have to wait another week.

Friday afternoons are filled with the impending excitement or disappointment. This has become such an integral part of office life that in our old building there was even a whiteboard with a chart to keep track of who had had what the treat Friday before to avoid doubling too often.

Now sometimes we have some lovely dark chocolate, it’s surprising popular but not always available. I hate disappointment so I like to make sure that I always have a jar of something chocolately on my desk. This also means that every day can be fun and exciting no matter what - especially in those crazy, mad, super busy times.
