Have Fun at Work: One Day Only (4/5/07)

We've heard that "all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy," which makes us wonder if there's really a way to combine work and fun. No one wants to do drudge work, but there are some jobs -- brain surgeon, airline pilot -- that you really don't want to be performed by some clown. So where's the middle ground? That happy medium that allows us to be productive (and keeps our bosses happy), and keeps our jobs from being something we dread? Fortunately, there are actually people whose job it is to devise solutions to dilemmas like this. Not only have they declared April 5 National Fun at Work Day, but the whole week of April 1-7 is Laugh at Work Week. We can't guarantee that your boss will approve your request to spend the day throwing pies in your pajamas, but it just might help lighten him up.
