Day 208- Kenda

If you can make a 1 1/2 hour long talk about insurance even the slightest bit interesting, and if you can keep me awake during this talk, you just might be special.

I spent four hours at the administration office today doing all of my official paperwork and learning about all the benefit options.  Kenda was my tour guide through the insurance, benefits, and retirement portion of the day, and let me tell you, this lady has spunk!  She was a tall, thin blond who introduced herself by letting us know that if we tried to e-mail "Kendra" instead of "Kenda," it just wouldn't work.  That's not her name.  She filled the navigation through dental plans and healthcare with wacky examples about her gardening injuries and bone density.  I was thoroughly entertained.  She asked if anyone had any questions and then continued chattering away without actually taking questions.  I was amused.  Then, she answered all kinds of silly questions that she had already answered five times.  She did this with grace and patience.  I was impressed.  She even gave me a toothbrush as a parting gift.  What a lady!

Thank you, Kenda, you made my day.

I agree! Insurance is about as boring to me as watching paint dry. Plus, the terminology usually confuses me to no end.

High five to Kenda for making it enjoyable and for supplying you with a free toothbrush for surviving it all. :)
