Hoop Dreams

Despite the recent spectacular disintegration of our beloved Cavaliers, a surprising addiction has beset many members of the Luscious Verde family: b-ball fever. The legend has it that our head designer Jason had an old hoop he wasn't using anymore, so why not bring it to work and share the bounty (and bring back bad memories of those of us who pretended to be sick on gym days)?

Such trepidation has given over to such a full-court press that even I, possibly the most sedentary person here, have been known to take part in a game or two during lunch breaks. Calories are lost, smack is talked, and we waste our time in the best way possible (that is, until we get our oft-fantasied nap room).

Um, Rob . . . I'm here to tell you the REAL story of how Luscious Verde acquired the basketball goal. One moderately warm summer day a couple of years ago, Jason and Liz were sitting in their annex discussing how enriched their lives would be if Luscious Verde had a basketball goal . . . just something to provide a little stress relief in between answering the phones and designing the newest LVC catalog update. Jason started browsing on Craigslist and found the exact hoop he had desired since early childhood. Unfortunately, it was a little more than he had hoped to spend. Through an involved scheme that incorporated a lot of trash talking (not too dissimilar to the sort of trash talking that goes on out there now) Jason convinced Liz that they needed to settle, once and for all, who was the better baller on "the court". So Liz paid half. Jason went to pick it up and he set it up out back. Unfortunately the disagreement about who has better ball handling skills has never been settled. Liz keeps forgetting to bring appropriate footwear. So I just continue to wait . . . but at least, in the mean time, I was able to tell you this really long, pretty boring story. I love you.
