WW 139 – Office Christmas Party – Day 6

‘Twas the day after Christmas, and all through the office, it was scattered with presents, though very few saw this. Beaker slept in a innocent haze in his cube (back to the entrance, the vulnerable rube). Along came Miss Carrie, wielding a box. She dropped it right on him and, quick as a fox, she bolted away and before he could see, the world sparkled with glitter, like an old festive tree.

Away in a hallway, apart from the dross, a 40-year old man who looked a lot like your boss crept slowly toward Catherine, but it was too late. She turned with her knife and the wrath of the Tate came down in quick slashes to body and face. He responded in kind and this isn’t the place to recount all the violence, the unmentionable gore. It suffices to say that he died but before he fell he inflicted a sinister wound on Catherine and in that same hallway festooned with glitter and streamers and derelict trees, the newest employee was brought to her knees.

Andy (Indy) is dead. He was a Manager (Wolf).

Catherine Tate (NarrowStrife) is dead. They were an Intern (Serial Killer).

Who was left in the office? A beleaguered assistant? A sobriety pusher so often resistant to human behavior? A beloved muppet? The grumpy hyena? And you know what? Fuck it.

The wine flowed like rivers; it was snowing outside. The Canadian worker with nothing to hide kissed his partner under the mistletoe sprig and were Janice still here she’d have reason to wig about these unseemly employee relations but nothing could cut short the new celebrations.

Away in the hall the esteemed Kitty Witless was spraying a message that said

“MERRY CHRISTMAS”

The sun started rising, the day had begun. But the game was now over. Town finally won.
