Imagine five days in early March vacationing in Maine’s pristine wilderness. Snow-shoeing, cross-country skiing, even some ice-fishing, all spent in surprisingly pleasant temperate conditions.
Now re-imagine that scene, but make it a team-building exercise with co-workers you’re not overly fond of. The bloom falls off that chilly rose pretty quickly, at least from Sunny Thompson’s perspective.
