Day 1,696 – Thankful for GIFs

While the topic of my blog tonight may not be the most deep I’ve ever had , but it is perfect for today!

During the work day my brain was thoroughly wrapped around half a dozen projects all at once. Deadlines moved up, things taking longer than expected, very interesting thoughts brought up, and so on and so on. For the most part all good, just mentally exhausting.

I paused for a moment to take a deep breath. After shaking my head for a second I grabbed my phone and checked my texts. Out of the blue a handful of my friends had texted about our upcoming get together now that we’re all vaccinated. It was exactly what I needed to reset my brain to move forward with my day.

There was only one way to respond fittingly to the strong of texts… a few GIFs back to back to back. Next thing I knew there were GIFs flying all over the place!

One that always makes me laugh is a one of Chris Farley and Adam Sandler. In no time someone threw it out there and I was laughing.

After a few laughs I went right back to work and was texting a teammate as we resolved a problem. Once it was resolved he sent me the following GIF to celebrate. For clarity, he and my other group of friends have never met. He and I hadn’t mentioned GIFs, especially the specific one he sent. The one he sent:


Sometimes a picture is worth way more than a thousand words. GIFs remind me of that daily.
