Shattering The Dreams of Today’s Youth

28 Jan

Unless you live under a rock, you’re aware that that there are many of us “enjoying” some pretty nasty ass weather.  I made the smart decision to “work” from home today.  It’s pretty complicated it involves the following:

  • Laying in bed to watch TV
  • Catching up on my blog reading
  • Not being at work
  • Checking my work email every 5 minutes so it looks like I’m “busy”
  • Emailing my friends
  • Playing on facebook
  • Snacking

 No, I don’t feel guilty for staying home when others dragged themselves to work.  After all, it’s not like I’m the only one that stayed home.  I’m not like Foxy, dedicated enough to try to kill myself to get into work. 

She and I were exchanging emails this morning.  You know what?  That Foxy is some kind of special.  Witness her comic genius:

BTW – I worked at the bus station last night. We closed early. But all the young kids who were working (like 19-22 year olds) were all like, ‘I can’t believe we’re even open tonight! I can’t believe we aren’t closed. It’s snowing – all the schools are closed. OMG!”

And I was like, ‘Gather ’round little chillens while mama tells you what it is like in the real world.” I told them about Company Info 911- how I don’t even call it anymore because I know we will never be closed or even open late. And they were shocked. It was like I told them we had colonized Jupiter. They thought you got snow days forever. Awwwwwww – so cute. But then I told them the story of Goldilocks so they wouldn’t have nightmares and I tucked them all in and gave them their binkies.

People, she needs to bring back her blog.  What say you?
