Happy Monday Everyone and welcome to the first official Miscellaneous Monday post in The Watercooler!

Watercooler Moments are the moments that used to fill the gap in the workday. According to Urban Dictionary a watercooler moment is a significant moment in television history that is discussed the next day in the workplace.

It was where employees, co-workers and friends caught up with each other and got a taste and look into their personal lives in the context of their professional pursuits. 

The Watercooler is a serendipitous space place hiding in plain sight! If you formerly were a member of the Off Topic group, you're going to want to join The Watercooler

In honor of the launch of The Watercooler, I'd like to hear memorable Watercooler moments you have experienced in your personal or professional life. What conversation, tidbit or hot take heard around the (proverbial) watercooler made an impact on your life?

Have a great week ahead and spread the word - The Watercooler is the newest coolest place to be!

Great topic @Andy Gladstone - I dig this one! My memorable Watercooler moment did not have a dramatic impact on my life, although it did help foster one of the greatest friendships. When I was working at CVS Health, my coworker (Chris) and I met some gentlemen at the watercooler in the break room where we had a nice conversation about all the wildlife we would see around the building. They proceeded to tell Chris and I how they have floor to ceiling windows down on the first floor where they work and it's literally a wildlife viewing area. So, they invited Chris and I down one day to see the wildlife that hangs out near this window and it was pretty amazing. Over the next few months until Covid happened and we all went to work from home, we saw all varieties of birds, javelinas, coyotes, little ground squirrels, and even a bobcat once. My coworker and I would would make weekly visits down to see "the zoo"!
