McGones Desktop Pranks
As most people who work with me know, McGone, my good friend and co-worker, left the Paper for another position at another business. I loved working with him because you never knew what to expect. He always had something clever to say, some physical gesture to make you laugh, or some snide remark to what was happening with his manical department. No matter what was happening, he made me laugh---ALWAYS. This is an "Ode" to him, because this morning, I was thinking of what I would post, and a memory popped into my head of what he used to do to my desktop pictures.
I am always putting my newest photos on my computer as wallpaper for everyone to see as they walk by. I am stationed at the nucleus of the Paper, so most everyone does in fact, "walk by" because of the timeclock. So, an ever so creative McGone would often "photoshop" my wallpaper to include a bonus feature to the scene. I would walk in later, see his masterpiece, and think,"Why didn't I think of that?". No one can "think of that" quicker than McGone, so don't even try, he's THAT sharp! Anyway, I decided to use his pieces of foulplay to be featured here today. I miss/envy his wit...
Note: Hey McGone, hope this doesn't weird you out. I thought of the shark pic this morning for a little twist from my norm, and it turned into this whole "Post of Admiration".
