Dodgeball: Brought It

It never fails that on the day before leaving on vacation, today, the work world takes the gloves off and gives me a good ol’ fashioned, bare-knuckled beat-down. I’m sure my nose is bleeding, and I’m developing some sort of butt rash from not leaving my chair in the past eight hours.
