I've always been an advocate of bringing some "play" into the work place. When things get stressful, I like to offer comedic relief, because let's face it: although we take what we do very seriously, and strive to create the best possible product for each and every person who walks through this door, we're not saving lives. This isn't a life or death occupation (thank goodness, because I was never very good at Operation as a kid). I will say though, applying liquid eyeliner does require a very steady hand!
Yesterday we had a free moment in between shoots and writing emails where Martin was asking me "I have all these tension rods, but none of them fit our window here. What can we do with them??"
I look at him with a big grin on my face. "Sword fight?" Both our eyes lit up. We both grabbed a sword, moved our equipment out of the way, and prepared to fight.
Hilarity ensued (as you can see)! It was such a great way to take a mental break and have some fun on a Monday morning. Tell us your most spontaneous work-day break! Don't have one? Comment below or give us a shout on Twitter! @mjbhomeent
