Bring Your Wheelie to Work Day

I completely faked out mom today by putting this on the calendar.
At first, she was a little confused, but then she said to herself, "well, as long as its wheelie day, I guess I should take Hector to work" SCORE!

Turns out that where mom works, most people live in cubicles, but mom lives in an actual office with a door. That means she can close the door when she wants to focus extra hard on important topics.

While mom worked, I decided to peruse her reading material. Most of it was pretty dull, but I did find this volume which looked interesting.
She keeps a bowl of engineer bait near the door to lure the uber geeks into her office. Then she gossips with them to find out what is really going on.Humph! Where is the photo of me?After a while, mom said she needed to go to a meeting and that I had to stay in her office and be a good wheelie. OK, first thing I did was check out her fridge to see what foodies might be available.
Pretty slim pickins.So I started looking through the filing cabinets and since this is the paperless age, there were some curious things in there.In particular, a lovely boa, AND GI Joe!Plus a meaty bone! Thank goodness, I was getting pretty hungry.Now what? I don't think I need to stay in this office, maybe I can go out and explore a bit. I went to a very instructive lecture on safety.

But then it was time to really explore!

I made a ton of new friends around the office, and based on the painting that mom has hanging over her desk...

I thought I might try my hand at some poker.

I did notice that Santa Rat was clearly rough trade and appeared to be packing a knife.I didn't think too much of it until he jumped snowman and accused him of cheating. Eeeek!Good think snowman confessed, so everybody was cool. Plus, I really like my new pal, Gene KellyBear. Hope I get to go to work again soon.Hector Wheelie. Over and out.

Hector, what a wonderful day at work with your Mom. I sure hope Mango doesn't see this post. He may wonder why he didn't get to go to work too. Glad to see that you had such a great time!

Your pal,

This has to be one of the most entertaining posts I have read in a long time! The Poker bit about made me fall out of my chair.

Thanks for the laughs!

Geez, all I do is spend my days in the garden weeding and you get to go to your mom's office! Wanna trade moms, Hector?
I love the GIJoe hat on your head!


Shmoo said...

Can my human woman work where yours does, it looks like a fun place.


Dark said...

Hi Mango arf arf!
Mom's said that your picture on desk you are so cute!
Some sundays I go with dad to find mom's work an I see her shop jeje.
I like so much go in our car because mom open my window and I can extract my little head and smell the flavours on the win :).

Mack said...

I think you need to sneak yourself into Momma's purse and go to work with her more often!!

But just don't turn your back on Santa Rat - that dude reminds me of Lilly!

Abby said...

Hi, Hector...

So that's what it's like at that work place...

It looks like sooo much fun...No wonder my Mom wants to go everyday...

Abby xxxooo

Wimsey said...

Looks like you had a great day Hector. Wish my human would take me to work but she keeps muttering something about drool and dry clean only.


Sophie Brador said...

I've been going to work with mom for ages, but only because she works at home a lot. It's not nearly as fun as going out to go to work. There ain't no blade packing santa rats here. At least, not that we've seen.

Your mom is super funny!


Deefor said...

I couldn't stop laughing. You really got into some trouble at work but at least you had some fun. Tell your mom she needs your picture on her desk too. And take a weapon next time. That rat is scary.


River said...

My mom loves your mom's office. It looks like so much fun. She said she needs to put out some geek bait.

love & wags,

I don't think much work got done today. It was good that you were able to get out of the house and see more of the big world.

Toffee said...

I am dizzzzzzzy just looking at you going around and around and around and around....

did you eat lots of "uber geek bait?" It sure looked yummy - no wonder you had so much energy!

I am glad that you attended that lecture on workplace safety - I noticed that the helmet protected you on some of those sharp turns in the hallway!

Our Girl Blue said...

Hahaha...I'm usually just a lurker, but I just had to comment - the pic of Hector playing poker is hysterical! Thanks for making me smile this afternoon!
