SEATTLE and DENVER and “TEXAS” – It’s getting hot in heeerrrrre.
At least, that’s what the folks at Barokas Communications are saying. With record temps hitting the nation these past few weeks, there is no doubt in anyone’s mind that summer has arrived. *
A quick survey of the Barokas Communications staff revealed that 100 percent of the team is enjoying the longer days and, frankly, happier people in the city. Backyard BBQs and increased levels of Vitamin D top the literal highlights of summer, followed by working on a tan, hiking, wearing flippy-floppies, eating ice cream, wearing shorts, and enjoying baseball and/or golf.
One undisclosed Account Executive wrote in, “Brunch, Booze, Repeat.” Cheers, mate.
The survey also discovered that 90 percent of the staff plan to get the hell out of here take a vacation at some point this summer, with almost 50 percent planning to partake in some outdoorsy shit that may or may not include camping in the nearby mountains with the family dog. Other vacation locales include: Vegas, Vegassss, Maui Wowie, “Space”, Burning Man, Lake Chelan, “an island”, Chicago, Telluride, Disneyland, San Francisco, Crested Butte, Walla Walla, Croatia, and quite a few out of town weddings.
“I’m like a traveling machine this summer,” commented an Account Manager who plans on taking three trips between July and September. Go get it, girl, you’ve earned it.
It should be noted that the Barokas Communications’s mascots, two English bulldogs named Mack and Emma, plan to stay in Issaquah to enjoy the cool comforts of home. Pampered pooches.
“I said I’m not going anywhere, stop rubbing it in,” agreed yet another Account Executive who wishes to remain anonymous.
*Editor’s Note: There is some doubt as to whether this weather will depart any time soon.
