I’ve been turned into a sideshow attraction at work.
Zuchiboy has a new class in (including The Youngest Miller Boy, yay!) and he was giving them the Obligatory Tour of the Building when I got into work this morning.Â They were hanging out around my desk, talking about conference rooms and training rooms and whatever.Â I got up to talk to The Man, reminding him that Vicki was picking me up at 2:00 PM.Â When I rounded the corner on the way back to my desk, I saw the whole class huddled around my cubicle, while Zuchiboy expounded on something.
You know what he was telling them?Â “Don’t ever marry another employee of this company, or you’ll end up like Jas.Â She’s getting fired.”Â Meanwhile, they were checking out the few wedding pictures I have up, and contemplating whether True Love was worth a job in corporate America.Â I got so many pity looks.Â It was astounding.
So, like I said, Vicki is picking me up today at 2:00 and we’re going to do fun and exciting things like eat lunch and exchange Christmas presents.Â You thought Christmas was over a month ago but OH NO.Â Not for me and Vicki.Â We like to drag Christmas out as long as humanly possible, so we wait as long as we can to exchange gifts.Â Of course, this often works to my disadvantage, as other people tend to buy things for her that are similar or exactly like what I have bought.Â This year she was supposed to receive from me the “Dukes of Hazzard Season 1″ DVDs.Â But her mom bought them for her too.Â So, since I lost my receipt, I’m stuck with Dukes of Hazzard DVDs.Â I hate the Dukes of Hazzard.Â Anyone want these?Â I’ll mail them to you.Â Mickey frickey John Schneider.
Anyway, I had to get a new gift for Vicki, so I went to town yesterday.Â I had vague ideas about what she wanted, but I had already been burned once.Â I didn’t want to get her anything else she’d mentioned to me in the last six months, because I knew that if I did, someone else would have already given it to her.Â So I bought her something she talked about a year ago.Â That should be safe.
