How We Told Everyone at Work

Everyone knows by now that I work at a pretty cool place. It's no secret that the decor is very girly and we like to have fun. I told my boss and she immediately wanted to call everyone down to share the news. Leah, Lacey and I knew that we had to do something different since 10% of our employees are pregnant and people would be expecting it if you said you had something to share. We have a product department that designs all of our wedding favors and baby gifts. We knew that they had also created a few baby shower games for a client and we thought we'd play on that. We wanted to pretend that the product girls made up a new game and wanted to test it out to make sure it wasn't too hard. That meant that we had to tell them first. Leah and Lacey designed the game board and we first tested it on Amanda and Christina and told them that we had an idea for a game. It was hilarious and they agreed to be apart of it. The plan was now in action. The product girls sent an email out to some people we selected to share the news with saying to meet in the conference room at X time to test out a new game. They passed the game out and gave the instuctions so no one would have any idea we were involved.

Now, it's your turn to play the game. It's called Mad Gab. You try to sound out the phrases that contain small words that, when put together, make a word or phrase.
See if you can get them, write your answers in the comments.
Here we are pointing to the one that refers to me. Keep in mind that it uses a nickname that a lot of people call me at work and in real life. It has to do with my maiden last name. Of course no reveal is complete without a video so Lacey recorded it for me and the only guy in the room got it.
It was very funny, everyone had a great time with it. She was trying to record without anyone noticing so that's why the camera is pointed down sometimes. We kept doing it over and over to people who missed the big reveal. 

Pin It
