Hi!

As April runs its course, here’s a friendly reminder that May is just around the corner.

Why this ever-so-obvious reminder? Because, readers, there’s a short window to capitalize on the above meme. Don’t be the groan-worthy friend making an “It’s gonna be May” joke on May 6, be the one dropping the timely meme into your office Slack channel April 30.

Like a well-formatted resume or a short but sweet cover letter, a little prep and you can be the meme master of your group chat.
