Miranda* had come up to give me her last revisions, the day Sarah (name not changed, as well, she likely does not read my blog and even if she did...she has already read about this ridiculous dream) left for vacation (this actually occurred, today). Miranda had one totally new page that was supposed to be the new cover, on a piece of gray cardboard. It was called ‘More Muffins Monday’ and had small clipart muffins as a border. I told her I didn't think it made sense (at all) but maybe we could put it further back in the books, but not the cover. She said she wanted all the families to know that since Summer Springboard (Orientation program name) Mondays were to be large, they were having muffins those days, as an extra perk for those braving the crowd. (Some context would probably be helpful here. Due to a change in summer work hours, all of our Orientation days run Monday-Thursday. Previously, Mondays and Fridays had been large days, for families clumped those days into a weekend. It makes sense for those traveling from afar and those wanting to not miss work during swing of things at work.) It had to be on the cover, because it was more important that the rest of the book, she said. I had tried to talk her into just stuffing a half sheet in Springboard folders for Mondays, but she wasn't having it. As Sarah AND Tisha (my supervisors with The One Books) were gone, I made an executive decision to “lose” the muffins page and not include it in the books.
