Have a Groovy Day!

Tuesday, July 15, 2008 - 12:30 PM

We've gotten a lot of great responses to our show Laughter. Tom was so inspired that he changed his voicemail: 'I was so excited that when I got to work I changed the end of my daily telephone greeting to '...make it a groovy day.' For some reason I then decided to start laughing like the laugh track people on your show.

When I finished I turned to look at my cube mates who were grinning from ear-to-ear. They didn't know what was going on of course but my laughing sure 'charged' their morning. Less than a minute later I started getting phone calls from others in the office who wanted to listen to my greeting. (My cubies must have told). I got 15 calls within 10 minutes and then things got back to normal. All day as I passed people in the hall I'd get '...hello Tom.' and then a big smile would come across their face.'

Listen to his giggle-fit at the top of the page.
