our new corporate motto

, who noted: "'Stressed' backwards spells 'desserts.'"
As I noted in my comment to dear Ms. Dark, we are often quite stressed in our business. Often we have rewards such as as pie and/or cake (or Peanut Butter Brownie Cupcakes
) and trust me, we look forward to things like pie and cake. When I say something like "I need a break, I'm going to get pie," it goes unquestioned—my boss understands. Last year (or maybe the year before, I don't remember exactly), we were working on a project and our creative director aka partner-of-my-boss aka a kickass mom, she baked me a cake. Twice. So yeah: "'Stressed' backwards spells 'desserts'" is my new motto.
