I was delighted this week to receive a special assignment from my sweet Bumblebee. For an assignment in her kindergarten class, she had to mail a darling snowman she made to any member of the family. That person would then take the snowman with them for one day, write a story about what the snowman did and then mail it back. It’s to teach the kids about mail since people rarely send letters anymore. Out of everyone in the family she picked me for the assignment. I was more than a little excited to help out. She thinks I’m good at adventuring, so I decided I’d better prove her right. I have a reputation to maintain, you know.
Mr. Snowman climbed into my bag before I headed to work. Here he is saying hello.
He rode to work with me on UTA Trax. Since I ride it every day it’s no longer a big deal for me, but Mr. Snowman could hardly contain his excitement.
After arriving in downtown Salt Lake City, Mr. Snowman came into my building with me. He sat proudly in my work space all day long and got several comments from my colleagues. They all thought it was great fun for him to visit.
Right around noon Mr. Snowman had the opportunity to do something very exciting: he visited the KSL Broadcast House with me to record the Zions Bank “Speaking on Business” spots for next week with the program host, Chris Redgrave, who happens to be my supervisor. He was excited to see how these two-minute radio spots are made. And he might’ve done a little bit of sightseeing while he was there. Who knew he was going to join the eyewitness news team and with the weatherman no less?
While he was in downtown, Aunt Tammy decided Mr. Showman should do a little more sightseeing. So, she took him to the brand new Deseret Book flagship store on South Temple and to Temple Square before going back into the office. He’s a little hard to see in the picture on the right because he’s really tiny, but he was happy to be in the snow.
Mr. Snowman had a quiet afternoon helping Aunt Tammy make phone calls, write “Speaking on Business” scripts, send emails and conduct a few phone interviews with clients who will soon be featured on the program. Soon it was time to head home again. Mr. Snowman was excited to go to Zumba class at the gym with Aunt Tammy and her friend Smirk later that night. By the time he got home, he was plain tuckered out. As far as Aunt Tammy knows, he had a great day with her in Salt Lake.
