Last night, my OR team leader (Allison Green) told my workmate and I that we were going to be doing a “team building exercise” the next morning…and to meet her in reception at 5:30am! Although we were a bit hesitant to wake up so early, Kyle and I agreed to meet her there. The only hint she gave us was to wear a hat.
So, my alarm went off at 5:20, and I walked upstairs to find Allison at reception. “We’re making pancakes for the entire crew” were the first couple of words that came out of her mouth…and that’s exactly what we did! Kyle, Allison, myself, & a few extra hands made hundreds pancakes from 5:30am to 8am.
Although it was an early morning surprise, we definitely enjoyed ourselves. And, as expected, much of the crew was surprised to find me back in the dining hall when I had been in scrubs the day before.
We finished off our morning shift of pancake making by creating one giant smiley face pancake, a sailboat pancake, and a pancake man.
Who would have thought that making pancakes for the whole crew would have been a team building exercise? Much less a fun one! Thanks Allison : )
