At work I have several nicknames. One is ImagiMary because I was an imaginary employee during my time working remotely in New Zealand. While I was there several new employees were hired and I was explained as the imaginary employee.
The other nickname I have at work is MerMary. My lovely boss made it up because I drink A LOT of water. I drink more water than anyone in the office and I only drink water. (Exemptions: I occasionally drink orange juice especially during long haul flights and after, and I occasionally drink the alcohols.) I only drink water at the office so they consider me a mermaid.
I drink a lot of water, I lived on an island, I am MerMary. It’s silly and I actually prefer other nicknames, but whatever. I do like being known for having a healthy habit. My kidneys definitely thank me for this!
When I came back from New Zealand a few weeks ago, my desk had been decked out in an island costume.
It was very Hawaiian but I let it slide since New Zealand and Hawaii are similar.
The decorations came with my very own mermaid! She is still hanging out in the water next to my desk this week and probably won’t go anywhere for a while.
We’ll just be two mermaids hanging out on our side of the office. Doing our thing, drinking some water.
Have you had water today? Do it! It’s good for you!
