One of my colleagues, Laureen, has a dog named Mr. Bitts who accompanies her to work every day. He’s something of an office celebrity.

On Thursday, Laureen had a bagful of these buttons and was handing them out to co-workers.

Now, I’m not trying to go all Robert Fulghum on you, but I sincerely ask:

What would this world be like without Laureens in it?
