The only thing left to do when realization strikes that you are really and truly, positively, no doubt about it Wacky is --- eat chocolate--- Okay, so it's not organic chocolate but it's sinful and I'm indulging..
Getting out of bed early when you have the "work from home" syndrome is punishment. Why did I make that appointment so early? Stretch that bod and move it. Time to greet those (nasty) birdies (that keep pooping on my patio furniture) and get ready to drive thirty five miles. No time for my fabulous cappuccino, triple espresso.
Hmm, How did I get here? I Don't remember the drive. Waiting and wating... How dang considerate of my client to be a "no-show" when I just confirmed this appointment yesterday. He is wasting MY time, how dare he.
Okay, not all together a waste, go get that early bird car wash special you've been wanting to catch. Back thirty five miles, couple of stops along the way. Sign "CAR WASH CLOSED". Dang car wash changed their schedule. How stupid, get their clients used to one schedule, then change it without warning, no notice. How damn ridiculous.
Geez, I need that quote I've been working on for Mr. Client by week's end. It's 4:30 pm, Thursday, and I haven't heard a word.
Me: "Hey Ms. Co., how are you today?"
Ms. Co.: "Week sucks so far, what's up?"
Me: "Oh good, then should I ask if you've heard anything on the quote for Mr. Client?"
Ms. Co: "No, not yet, I have it out to bid but no response yet."
Me: "Shoot, I'm getting really worried. I promised Mr. Client we'd have something to him by week's end."
Ms. Co: "Yes, I know but it's only Wednesday, we still have some time."
Me: "Arrrgghhhh, huh? Are you kidding me?"
Ms. Co: "What? Believe me, we still have time."
Me: "Today is WEDNESDAY? Oh, my God. I swear I woke up to Thursday. No wonder my appointment didn't show and the car wash was closed."
Ms. Co: "Oh boy and I thought my week sucked. Far gone, are ya?"
Me: "No, just really, really, really and truly Wacky!"
Yep, just give me some more CHOCOLATE!
