The boss’s secretary has, once again, not pitched up for work.
Guess who got stuck with the things she was supposed to do? You guessed correctly!! Do you think I enjoyed it? Heck yeah!! Did not get a lunch break, but hey. I was busy the whole day. Did not have time to think up all kinds of strange crap. Wish it could be like this all the time – at least then the mind is being occupied 😉 The old man is getting less enamoured of her as the days goes by – maybe, just maybe she will do something to really piss him off, and I can step into those shoes again. But that’s wishful thinking. Such things don’t happen to ma it seems.
Don’t know if you remember, but I’ve been chatting to a South African dude that works in India for the past 2 years. Yesterday, we met for the first time. Decent dude, but almost a whole head shorter than me. Not the the length of a dude is really the deciding factor, but even so!! A dude is supposed to be the protector. And how is he going to protect me if I’m a head taller than he is? He’ll hide behind me! Enormous potbelly – so not my thing, even though I’m by no means G-d’s gift to mankind – but my midlife spread is getting less now that I’m expending some of my energy with dancing. So we chatted, and was able to, mostly, keep the convo from going to the nether regions. And then he left, and the bloody pawing started. Damn!!! Can they just never keep their effing thoughts in their heads instead of their pants? I was less than impressed, and suffice to say, I have not heard from him again – not even the promised, “I’m home” message that I asked for. And we actually spoke about that same thing. The walls I’ve built around me. My little soldiers always on the lookout. And I told him that if a dude shows any kind of perseverance, I’ll show him the weak parts in my walls so he can break through. If there’s no perseverance, there will be no weak point, and therefore, no entry. After yesterday’s fiasco, I’ll not even be hugging until the fourth or fifth date!
Left work this afternoon and drove right into a rainstorm. Some lightning, some thunder, but mostly just clouds opening and water pouring from the heavens. Lovely!! Now everything’s wet and hopefully satisfied for a while. We’ve had quite a lot of rain this year – hope it does not mean that next summer will be a dry one. Will mean I’ll have to start using my grey water to water the garden with, and that will mean major plumbing changes.
But that’s a worry for another day.
Going dancing tonight again – my private lesson, and I’m taking them tunes 😉
For now, this is what tonight feels like for me – kind of calm and relaxed and a bit sad.
Hope yours is a good one!
