“Cara, what do you like to do for fun?” The leader of this team building activity asked.
“Oh, I don’t do too much,” Cara replied. She tried desperately to dodge the question that was so common in this type of event.
“Now, now, we’re all friends here. No judgement between colleagues,” the leader prompted. Sarcastic laughs sounded in reply.
Cara sighed. Better to answer than to drag out the moment, she thought.
“I spend my free time creating wooden signs and putting them throughout town. Parks, baseball fields, public spaces; you know,” she answered.
“Neat! What do the signs say?” The leader asked.
“Quicksand!” Cara replied.
“Oh. Neat. Bryan, what do you do for fun?” The leader moved on.
