IMPROG: FOLLOW is the word of the day

Today is improg day. It’s time to break out the envelope. Have I mentioned the fact that Susan made me the envelope out of an old calendar? In case I haven’t, here is a picture of the front of it: 

Here is a photo of the back of the envelope/calendar. You can just barely see a few of the slips of paper I have left to blog about. See? Doesn’t it make you want to improg too????

Today’s word is FOLLOW. Hmmm...I wonder what she was thinking when she wrote that one down. For those of you who know me, following is not one of my stronger traits. In fact, I don’t even think I know how to follow anybody or anything. Not much of a lemming, this one.

The first thing that popped into my head when I read the word FOLLOW?????

Follow the yellow brick road, follow the yellow brick road 
Follow, follow, follow, follow, follow the yellow-brick road 
Follow the yellow-brick, follow the yellow-brick 
Follow the yellow-brick road 

You're off to see the Wizard, the Wonderful Wizard of Oz 
You'll find he is a Whiz of a Wiz if ever a Wiz there was 
If ever, oh ever, a Wiz there was the Wizard of Oz is one because 
Because, because, because, because, because 
Because of the wonderful things he does 
You're off the see the wizard, the Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

I loved the Wizard of Oz. My friend, Natalina, grew up in Canada. The Wizard of Oz is mostly an American tradition apparently. She never gathered round the TV every September to watch the Wizard of Oz. And she never wondered why, at the beginning, that she thought the show was in color and why it was being shown in black and white. Consequently, she also never sang the songs over and over and over again.

And now, you will be singing the song, over and over again. Kinda sticks in your head, eh? Now if I could only find that helium filled balloon around here, it would be perfect.

For those of you who work in a larger office, the time has come to go grab that balloon that your co-worker got for his/her birthday (the one that is only half heartedly sticking above the cubicle because their birthday was last week and the balloon is starting to deflate), suck the helium out of it and sing! Sing loud. Sing proud. 

Of course, you should also change your voice mail while you are at it.

Just don’t be a follower today, be a munchkin leader.

P.S. I managed to use today's improg word 14 times. I think that must be some sort of a record.
