Freezing Offices, Hot Chocolate and Christian Bosses

Hail the return of those indoor winter days so unique to Singapore. If one could actually freeze one's butt off, the office floor would have been littered with discarded rumps, and all before lunch break.

The way to not have to pick through the scattered glories (or gories) is this: liberate some good quality half-eaten chocolate from the office fridge, melt them in a bain-marie of hot water, add brown sugar courtesy of an overcharging coffee outlet, whip in hot thick creamy milk gently zapped in the microwave and top with marshmellows rescued from a colleague's desk. Hot chocolate. Mmmhmmm.

And why it is good to be a Christian boss is this: you find out which days your secretaries/subordinates have bible study/cell group/discipleship group. You demand quality and efficiency and meeting deadlines. However, on those bible study days, you demand leaving the office in time for their groups. If deadlines are not met, you will meet it for them. If they linger, you will throw them out by the scruff of their necks. Because the most important things are God's Word and fellowship with God's people.
