What Happens Off The Air

The Hunt For The Red Paper Clip

“Are you serious?”

That is the reaction I got from Cathi Swan of the Business Office of Morningside college when I came searching for a red paper clip.

I had been tasked with finding not only a red paper clip but it also had to be “creatively bent” according to my instructions from Ross Fuglsang.

Swan laughed through the entire affair after I had made my initial request because this isn’t something many people ask for at the business office. After acquiring the paper clip for me I asked if she could bend it into something creative. The result is a red spiral.

I thanked her when I left and the smile on her face due to this unusual request was priceless.

    What does Cathi look like? Did she scrunch up her eyes when she asked, “Are you serious”? What happened during the meeting for her to realize you were serious?
