Take your cheetah to work day

In honor of  "National Take Your Children to Work" Day, something I participated in when I worked for a fancy firm, I thought I would show pictures from when I took "Cheeto" to work with me.  Have you met Cheeto?  He is AK's beloved Cheetah and on April 15th, she sent him to work with me to "help out" at AK's suggestion. 

His lack of thumbs really didn't lend itself to preparing tax returns, so I gave him other duties, like filing.
He also took a spin at answering phones.   "No Ma'am, your dog is not a dependent." 
And at the end of the day, Cheeto celebrated with a champagne toast.   I had sparkling cider, so that I could be designated driver for Cheeto.
AK was tickled at seeing all the pictures of Cheeto throughout the day and the staff had a great time blaming all the things that went wrong on Cheeto, he made for a really nice scapegoat.   The only hiccup with the day was when AK wanted to see Cheeto's paycheck... which made me wonder if this was really a moneymaking scheme on her part.

I think it's been Cheeto giving me tax advice all these years, not you!

Have you ever thought about creating an e-book or guest authoring on other blogs?
I have a blog based upon on the same subjects you discuss and would
really like to have you share some stories/information.
I know my readers would enjoy your work. If you're even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an email.

Take a look at my weblog: vertical leap exercises

I need a Cheeto right now... Maybe he joined your firm as an intern - in fact, if you play it that way Cheeto (or Cheeto's mom, AK) might actually owe you tuition money!
