Daily Prompt: Primp

Microsoft Word - Document4

via Daily Prompt: Primp

Primp. Hmmm, what an obscure word for a prompt. Even though I know what it means I still looked it up, hoping for a spark of inspiration perhaps? Because of course the only thing on my mind is the election results. I work with a very diverse group of people. From the outside it could be viewed as an odd soup. A good amount of people are from the very town that our office is in. Lifelong residents who are known as “townies”. These people have grown up in one place, most have never left and they are proud to call this place home. Quintessential Americans. The remainder of my co-workers are from all over the world. Central America, South America, Europe and Africa. They have come here for a better life for themselves and their families and they are proud to call the U.S. home. Yesterday all anyone could talk about was the election. Today, no one has even brought it up. I think maybe everyone is turning it over in their heads trying to figure out what it all means. And regardless of who you supported, we all know it means different things for different people in this office. It feels uncomfortable and that discomfort is hanging in the air because at the end of the day, we all love and respect one another. One of my lovely co-workers brought in dozens and dozens of doughnuts, comfort food to help everyone feel better. She left a note of love with them. Everyone is partaking, happy to have a delightful sweet on this very uncertain morning in America. It is a little piece of common ground that we are all happy to share today.
