Happy Holiday?

February 15, 2009

So I guess today is some kind of holiday. President's Day maybe?

Jared's working, I'm working, and James is on school vacation, so I didn't realize it was a federal holiday until I walked into a locked, dark, quiet office building this morning. You see, I have a random, little oddball office sandwiched between a bunch of state workers. I've gotta say, it works out pretty well.

They scoff at me when I'm like, "Welp, it's 2 o'clock and if I sit at this desk for another second I swear my hair'll set on fire. I'm so outta here." And I scoff at them when they're all, "Achoo! I sneezed! My goodness I better get that checked out by a specialist--you know, since I have excellent health benefits and all."

Basically, they're all ankle-chained to their desks, and I get my pap-smears in a storage unit--any way you slice it, work is work is work.

I have no idea what I had in mind when I started writing this post, but I'll tell ya, working alone is really blah--mixed with a dash of creepy. The only redeeming point is the fact that every time I have to pee (or poop), I do it with the doors hanging wide open.

Oh my word, it's completely freeing--the stall door flapping in the breeze, staring at the long, dark hallway while I take care of business. I bet this is why everyone wants to be the president. If anyone was ever like, "Mrs. President, you should close the door when you urinate," I could be all, "No. You should shut your MOUTH while I urinate. You're fired."

A girl can dream.

How did I know it was a holiday? Government employeeeeee baby! Don't worry. I didn't do anything cool. Just sat here in my house and watched it start snowing again. Maybe they'll cancel work tomorrow too. The government doesn't like to drive in the snow.

It's not Presidents Day. It's the kick-off to my birthday week. I'm very popular.

LBJ used to hold presidential meetings in the bathroom while he pooped.

Funny how the most exciting thing about working alone is the ability to poop freely. There is something to be said for that.
