Oh what a day this is turning out to be. First, my sister’s purse calls me about 7 am as I am getting ready for work. Then I get in to my desk and all settled in, eating my bagel for breakfast and about to start on my banana and the phone rings. Hmmm, I sort of recognize the number. Sure enough, I answer and it is a friend from work.
I have run out of gas on my way in. I am stuck on the side of the highway. Can you come get me? I have been here since 7:00am! Now, you have to know this friend. He is s a good guy and will do anything to help you, but he also takes pretty much everything and tries to turn it into a joke. Most of the time it is harmless, but he can be unmerciful when he thinks something is funny. Even if it isn’t.
So, of course I say yes, I will come get you. I hang up the phone and immediately announce to the office that he has run out of gas and is stuck! Just so people have fodder to give him a hard time. I then go help him out, of course being merciless myself. Telling him how “E: is bad and “F: is good. Giving him a hard time about spilling gas and how it should go in the tank and not on the street. All the while he is getting more frustrated. It was one of those priceless moments. You finally get to harass a friend who has done it to you. Ahhh, what a sweet feeling. I know the tide will turn, but I had to take advantage while I had the chance.
Luckily he has not noticed that I wore a smaller sized shirt and it is too small. Pulling at the buttons when I am sitting down. Ugh, it is too tight, but not much I can do about it now. I had hoped I had lost enough that it wouldn’t be this bad. oh well, it will fit eventually. I just love the shirt and was hopeful I was down to the sixe to fit.
And now we have a whole mess going at work. I can't go much into detail but is is over a lawsuit and some issues with the local government. Never a dull moment I guess.
