    Assisi likes to sneak into small spaces, and today that works to his advantage. WALK OVER THE BLUE DROPDOWN BOXES BELOW (or just click on them) to open up their content. Some of them may reveal signposts like these, which give you info about Assisi and let you pick his benefits. There are no right or wrong choices - we'll announce which benefits got suggested the most after the Open Enrollment period. By the way, TO CLOSE A SIGN'S MESSAGE, CONTINUE USING THE W,A,S OR D KEYS TO MOVE PAST.

    A little hint along your way: the main signposts begin showing up in the 'Health Benefits' section below, where Assisi has some choices to make.

    Assisi's primary care vet is in all major networks. He's in generally good health but his superior began asking him to make regular office visits after a near run-in with a Philadelphia Segway tour put him on a prescription for high blood pressure. SELECT ONE OPTION BELOW BY CLICKING ON IT WITH YOUR MOUSE.

    There's no way around it, Assisi has a sweet tooth. During a summer of youthful indiscretion, he wiped out a small peach orchard in northern Pennsylvania. He sees his primary care dentist regularly for cleanings but has occasionally needed the dentist's drill and a very powerful magnifying glass. SELECT ONE OPTION BELOW BY CLICKING ON IT WITH YOUR MOUSE.

    Mice don't have the best eyesight of the animal kingdom. Their eyes are built for finding food in small, cramped or dark spaces. Assisi on the other hand works in front of a computer for 8 hours a day. He does worry however that his family history of relying on sound and smell instead of vision may catch up to him in this line of work. SELECT ONE (IF ANY) OPTION BELOW BY CLICKING ON IT WITH YOUR MOUSE.

    Assisi doesn't think much about retirement these days. Besides, Mickey Mouse is like 100 years old now and still going at it. But in the spirit of 'a better tomorrow,' he realizes it's better to put in the planning now and watch the dazzling magic of compound growth unfold before him. SELECT ONE OPTION BELOW BY CLICKING ON IT WITH YOUR MOUSE.

    Assisi is sort of a klutz, but not quite an 'Accidental Death & Dismemberment' klutz. He works indoors away from natural predators which does wonders for life expectancy. And finally, having taken a vow of celibacy, he has no dependents. CHOOSE ANY OPTION(S).

    The previously mentioned peach orchard incident was just one of many failed New Year's resolutions that wreaked havoc on Assisi's waistline. Additionally, although today he practices detachment from the world, his assigned recreation time permits him to indulge in his inexplicable fondness for riding 200 foot vertical drops at 80 mph. CHOOSE ANY OPTION(S).

    Assisi will be the first to tell you he's not the sharpest cheddar in the cheese wheel when it comes to money. But although his vow of poverty keeps him as poor as a church mouse, he is nevertheless now a source of income for his roughly 1500 confreres. Financially he's starting from scratch, has a credit score of "not applicable," and frankly it's a little embarrassing for a mouse his age. CHOOSE ANY OPTION(S)

    Well it's been quite the educational adventure through Assisi's PII, but we've come to the end where it's time to tally up and submit your suggestions for what he should sign up for. Thank you for playing, and please list your name and department below. We don't have a high score but we've got a heck of a raffle.
