My awesome coworkers actually planned this secretly but dropped hints here and there that I should be avoiding any meetings in the morning. I played a practical joke on them and text messaged that I was taking a day off right before I walked trough the door. I didn't hear the exclamations of disbelief and disappointment but saw their faces all freaked out with the realization that I got them real good. Man, I think we laughed for a good 10 minutes! Well, at least I did! Thank you, guys! That was sweet of you all.
