Clammin' up...


MarieC always has such entertaining stories. She says: I used to work in a publications department at a consulting firm. It was our tradition to bring back little trinkets from vacation to give to coworkers. Imagine my horror when, upon giving one of these little beauties to my editor, she pointed out that it read "a century of reclamtion," not "a century of reclamation." I don't think there ever were any clams in Lake Mead, so they could hardly be talking about a century of reintroducing clams to the lake. This might explain why these keychains were such a bargain...

Thanks, MarieC, for this funny picture...and even funnier story!

Oh, I'd totally buy that as a souvenir! Don't think I'd use it, but I'd have to buy it!

I used to work in an office where the trinket tradition was popular and I miss doing that. Maybe I should try to get it started at my current office...

That is a cute tradition! Just make sure you proofread your trinkets before buying them! :D

I certainly hope she bought it on clearance!

LOL, I hope so, too!
