Your Weekly BroBasket Check-in
 

Shadow

Business is running smoothly, and though we usually give you an update on what’s happening in the office, today we’re just going to jump right into what you all say you really love about these emails … the personal s&%!.

Let's Get Right To It!

Beemagedon!

We know you’ve been waiting with bated breath for a Mike Bee Update. Well here it is … 

It took a few days, but the bee experts have completed the job. The bees are gone, so that’s the good news. But here’s the super-weird-WTF-are-you-kidding me news: there were 20,000 bees in Mike’s attic! Yes, you read that right: 20,000! As a basis for comparison, that’s almost double the amount of humans that live in Sedona, Arizona. Wild, right?

Back in the spring, when the bees surfaced in Mike’s attic the first time around, the bee people estimated there were 4,000 of them. And that’s a crazy amount of bees! Yet somehow, from May to August, Mike's "Bee Portfolio" has increased by 5X!!! 

(Sorry not sorry for that little finance joke – we’ve been watching lots of finance videos on YouTube lately. SHOUTOUT to the 'Whiteboard Finance' Channel!)

 

It’s Pool Weather People

If you don’t live in Southern California, you may be under the assumption that the weather here is perfect all the time. Um … not always. Yes, SoCal weather is usually about as good as it gets, but this weekend, the temperatures are going to be insane.

James grew up in Bakersfield, and he’s planning a weekend trip with his wife and daughter to visit his parents. Well, his Bako weekend plans of BBQing and hanging outside have been slightly derailed, because temperatures are expected to be in the 110's this weekend. He’s still making the trip, but there will be more indoor AC moments than backyard barbeques. Lucky for James, his parents do have a pretty sweet pool. 

 

Damn You Rona, We Want to Party!

COVID-19 has changed the way we live, including how we celebrate b-days, graduations, weddings, and baby showers. But even the Rona couldn’t stop Kenneth’s wife’s co-workers from throwing them a virtual baby shower.

Kenneth and his wifey had a virtual baby shower yesterday, thrown by her colleagues that haven’t even seen her since she started growing the baby bump. Everyone bought gifts from their Amazon baby registry and they did a video call of opening gifts and sending lots of thanks. The little one will be here before we know it! (Wait... who's going to put together these emails when Kenneth's out on paternity leave???😱)

 

The Tales of Jun Continue

If you’ve been reading these weekly emails religiously, you already know that Jun was planning to leave us to do sales for a solar/home alarm company. Well since being a door-to-door salesman during the pandemic probably isn’t the safest thing to do, and it doesn't look like this pandemic will be over any time soon, he’s looking to make a move into something he’s always been super passionate about instead – farming! Specifically, regenerative agriculture. 

He recently had a phone interview with a New Mexico farm and he’s waiting to hear back from them, so wish him good luck and send over some positive vibes! He doesn’t have a ton of farming experience (outside of growing his own microgreens), but he’s super into it and committed to learning everything there is to know about the business.

If you or someone you know happens to have this type of farm, let us know if you have any openings or internships available. We’ll be sure to pass the info along!

 

Mauricio Is Officially Off the Market

Mauricio, who entered COVID quarantine as a single man, somehow managed to come out on the other side with a girlfriend. WHAT?????? How he did it, we have no idea. But all of a sudden he’s using the words “my girlfriend” a lot. Now we know that the internet is a magical place, but we didn’t really expect Mauricio to find love online in the middle of a pandemic. To quote him exactly, “…not only did I catch Corona, I also caught another bug … the love bug.” 

And since we know Kenneth’s mom is reading this, Mauricio wants to you know you can no longer make fun of him for being single. He’s found himself a very nice girl!
