Did You Miss Me?
Well? And who is that 1 person who just read 10 posts, anyway?
I have not been doing this, or my real job either, for the past several days, because I’ve had a cold, and blowing my nose has been my job. (Wow, my ears just popped! I’ve been waiting so long…) I returned to work (“911, I can hardly hear you, my ears are stopped up”) today, only to set off a storm of controversy about whether I’d need to get a doctor’s excuse if I’d been gone “three or more days” or “more than three days.” The latter, if you don’t mind, AND STOP MAKING ME FEEL LIKE A CHILD! Or I’ll have a tantrum.
I got lots to say, but I’ll save it for later, because I have to shower now so I can get up early so I can go to church, in a rare case of cleanliness actually being next to godliness. I’ll just spare a moment for someone even more pitiful than myself…
…Behold the unfortunate Nick, who has to work for 16 hours, then come back to work tomorrow, after only 4 hours sleep. The noble head drooping, the splendid wings sagging, the magnificent tail dragging in the dust…now if I can only get close enough to get this harness on him…yes, it seems cruel, but kindness is wasted on him. He only respects strength.
“What makes you think I still follow your blog?” he inquired this evening. Please. As if you could ever resist reading about yourself, you wretched beast.
