Random Hallmark Moments: Pass the Pie

  Recently our department split into two teams to compete and see who could gather more donations for Harvesters, a great organization that provides meals to the hungry in our community. I was on the East Side team, led by Sara, and Tara led the West Side team. The losing senior manager agreed to take a pie in the face for the cause.
  There was a lot of good-natured trash-talking during the weeks of the competition, but ultimately it was won by West (West Siiiiide!), so Sara was on the hook for the pie, and Tara was a willing and enthusiastic emcee who clearly was going to relish the pie humiliation.
  Sara attempted to weasel out by putting Dave in a skirt and a wig to stand in for her, but his hairy legs gave him away. She eventually showed up and took one for the team. They were all excellent sports and it made for a fun end to the day. But look out next year, West!
