Like everybody else I always wanted to be a 'fly on the wall'. So when I had the chance to be any animal I wanted for one day that is what I chose. It started out really great I was buzzing around from office to office where I work and I was learning a lot of juicy tidbits. I had no idea my boss picked his nose while he read the morning reports. And I was surprised to find it was Grace who was stealing employee lunches from the break room. I also didn't know June would like to go out with me and was saddened to find that her friend Alice whom I had a crush on said she wouldn't go out with me if I was the last man on Earth. In my bosses office I found out they were planning to downsize and that there was no way I was going to get the promotion I was trying for.

I surly would not have picked fly for a day if I had thought it out better. Ugh, flies eat poop, all day long they go around looking for poop to eat. And another problem you finally get to the wall you want to be on and everybody leaves and you're stuck in an empty office. Another thing I didn't think about everybody hates flies. Oh oh, I think Alice see me hiding on the wall in her office she is coming closer. What is in her hand is it a fly swatter? Alice, no....SMACK
