However, I am not talking about those occasional and rare humorous situations of exchanging some silly jokes or laughing at a Dilbert cartoon, but a continuous period of workplace enjoyment when you did not dread that Monday morning alarm. A period when you used to go home relaxed and content instead of planning to update your resume. Probably never. But, do you remember the amount of fun you used to have as kids?
