A small startup company announces they will be holding an employee costume party to celebrate the end of their first fiscal year in business.
The theme of the party is “Past and Present” to celebrate the work that has been done while also looking forward to the years to come. To further expand on the theme they encourage all employees to bring family members if they would like to, children included. They even announce they will even be giving away a prize for the most creative costume!
The day of the party arrives and everyone is in attendance, including the CEO of the company, Catherine.
As she’s mingling with employees, she comes across one employee with a particularly interesting costume. They are wearing a full cat outfit as well as makeup with wrinkles and gray hairs.
“So what are you supposed to be?” asks the CEO.
“I’m you!” responds the employee. “I’m you in the future… old ‘Cat’”.
The CEO laughs and thanks the employee for their creativity and work on the costume.
The employee’s young daughter then walks up to join their parent, also dressed as a cat, but without the wrinkles or gray hair.
“Do you know what I’m dressed up as?” asks the girl.
It immediately clicks as the CEO recognizes what the girl’s costume is.
“Why, you’ve gotta be kitten me!”
