My boss is awesome...

My boss has been on a business trip in France for the past 2 weeks. He came back today.

We were all working in the office area of the lab. He walks in announcing his return and distributes TDF hats to all of us!

Being the only cyclist in the lab, I knew right away what these were.

What a guy...

Was he raising French babies and tossing soft cheeses as well?

Hmmph. MY boss gave me a rocking chair when he found out mine broke. I use the chair to help me fall asleep because of my insomnia.

(Congrats on the hat, that IS awesome! )

Did some say the weight gain in training was too much to overcome?

My boss went to Amsterdam and London two weeks ago and all I got were cell phone pics of him partying at outdoor pubs while watching the World Cup. He was in Amsterdam the night the Dutch beat Uruguay to make the finals. He sent a couple of "drunk e-mails" later that night that I've saved...just in case.
