… and maybe you can get more people to take the stairs. At least, my working theory is that the following series of events was cooked up as an HR wellness initative to get our company’s employees to move more. It all started on November 22 when I was hiking back to the sixth floor from my daily treadmill break in the main floor gym. I noticed that next to a small hole in the wall of the stairwell, someone had amusingly placed a rubber mouse.
Funny, I thought. I snapped a pic and posted it on Facebook. Apparently the mouse had been there about a month already, but newfound exposure jumpstarted something inexplicable. By November 25, there were two.
My coworkers are hilarious, I thought. But it didn’t stop there.
Ok, that’s cozy and sweet. But then …
A child! Apparently the young one has spurred a renewed interest in religion. So of course …
… along come the missionaries. And Santa Claus. Then things started to get a little out of hand.
Even in the best of rodent families, commercialism begins to take over Christmas. Last I saw this morning, this is how their home stands. If anything else develops, I’ll be sure to post updates. You are welcome to come along for the ride.
UPDATE: A few pieces of furniture were added in Friday. Note that “It’s a Wonderful Life” is playing on the TV.
UPDATE 2: Lights!
UPDATE 3: Pets!
UPDATE 4: Elf on the Shelf finally made the scene, and a copy of The Night Before Christmas is sitting right next to the TV REMOTE. For mice.
UPDATE 5: A small nativity
UPDATE 6: The mouse family left us a Christmas card—they have names!
FINALE: There were no further updates when I took the stairs today. Since I will be out of the office until after Christmas, I hereby conclude this post. Thanks for following along.Published in
