Follow Up

February 4, 2009

And since that last post contained more than enough whining, complaining, and negativity to carry us all through the calendar year, I will follow it up with something that displays my lightheartedness and gratitude for all things good in the world of work...

I am thankful for financial planners who assume, due to the nature of my husband's business and education, that we have a lot of money. I am grateful that financial planners typically prefer to discuss matters over a lunch that they pay for--especially good Chinese food.

I am also thankful for the State of Maine's copy machine maintenance guy. Someday I kind of hope that his clothes fall off by accident.

I enjoy my biweekly paycheck.

I'm happy to work behind a church that holds a once weekly aerobic class for super old men--totally makes me smile when I walk by the window on Tuesdays.

I'm grateful that I work close enough to home that I can go home to pee when the bathroom is so unbelievable stinky.

I like to fax love notes to my husband from my office to his.

See? I'm not such a bad person after all!

I survive spin class by watching this REALLY old guy doing Latin (salsa, rumba, etc) dance in the next room. His hip trusts are amazing.

Hey, while you're at the love notes per fax machine, try sending Jared some notes to himself from the future Jared. Ha ha.

Well, sister, I enjoy weekly paychecks, be they straight, gay, or bi. I guess that just makes me more open-minded than you. Not that I'm judging.

I like to fax love notes to my husband from my office to his.

Wow! Really? Because I still send mash notes to Teh 'Bride via Morse Code Telegraph! Tell me more about this new-fangled faxiola technology, sister! Because then I'll tell you how to make the copy machine guy's clothes "accidentally" fall off with the aid of nothing more than a (slightly modified) common flame-thrower. (Just set the intensity knob to "uniform disintegration".)
