Or: It’s Really Hard to Play Together as Adults
When I was little, getting together as a group was fun. Somehow, my friends and I would always end up trying to accomplish something.*
*”Something” including achievements like “climbing ladders” and “pretending to be Thundercats.”
Things stayed pretty positive through the teen years. Group projects meant hanging out, over-caffeinating, and pretending we definitely got productive things done.**
**While also methodically ignoring whatever the point of the project was, until the last minute, where we each decided we’d done all the work on our own, without any help from each other.
But by the time college rolled around, things got sort of confusing…
…Because it’s really hard to technically be arguing when pizza is involved, but it’s also hard to accomplish anything while tipsy*** on the floor.
***Let’s be honest. By the time you’re on the floor, tipsy was a few drinks ago.
Then came the working world. In my head, the corporate world would be full of intrigue, professionalism and productive meetings.
It was not.
But now, technology has made professional group projects even more fun.
Mostly by giving us all more ways to argue with each other.
