Technohub ushered in the new work year by renewing his commitment to making his workplace more organized. One of the main concerns is communication between him and his staff. There is a tiny whiteboard but, with so many reminders and meetings and companies to call, it is getting very crowded.
So he visited a nearby National Bookstore, but was shocked to find out a bigger whiteboard would cost several thousands. Hmmmm. There’s gotta be a cheaper option. His fertile mind went into active mode.
He proceeded to inspect the over-priced white board. Hmmmm… Whiteboard laminate… 1/4-inch plywood… Some glue… A bit of sanding… I’m brilliant!
He gave instructions to his trusty jack-of-all-trades. Within half a day, it was hung on the wall – the huge whiteboard that would be the center of their office life this year and surely for several years to come. The best thing is he only spent less than a thousand pesos!
Actually, the board was fitted into a wall of windows, which had to be permanently sealed off to accommodate it. It was that big.
So what’s the accidental gift? The board had several inches of excess, which was cut off. And was presented to me, originally intended to make me a more organized housewife.
Technohub: Ayan, d’yan mo isulat ang menu for the year ha.
When the kids saw the piece of whiteboard, they had better ideas.
Everyday now, they are excited to study as they take turns writing on the whiteboard. Patch loves that she can play teacher to VGood. At least it has made studying soooo much easier. And it has eased me off some teaching duty.
And, I was saved from writing a years’ worth of menu plans! 😉
This is the best accidental gift ever!
