Everyone occasionally has downtime at work. And if you are like our office, we try to pack every free moment with games and toys that adorn our desks.

Whether it's having an office bowling contest or choosing a new outfit for our magnetic dolls, we, at times probably look half our age. But it gets the creative juices flowing and can help at times during a stressful work environment.

Based on the episode of "The Office," where the crew has an office games Olympics (complete with medals made with yogurt and paper clips), we have to imagine we are not the only ones goofing off when we have a chance.

So do you walk around with bouncy balls, position your action figures in a new way or completely wrap every item on a co-workers desk in newspaper? Because we do. And we want to hear from you.

So shoot me an e-mail at maggiec@lodinews.com or call me at 209-369-7035.
