Sometimes I ask my wife if she has read my latest blog post, and she’ll say, “I skimmed it, they’re too long.” I’m fairly certain that she’s literate, so I think she’s not lying. With that in mind I will be doing a shorter blog post today. You have to sacrifice to make a marriage work.
For the last prompt I asked, “What are you annoyed about right now?”
I will use Tiffany’s answer:
“Nothing! I’m working from home, so that makes everything all better. The only thing is that I’m a tightwad, so my house is freezing cold. Stupid utility bill.”
Here is a listing of the things I would do if I worked from home.
8:30 Sleeping and drooling
9:42 Wake up hoping to stay asleep, but I have to go #1 really bad. I debate what my chances are of falling back to sleep while my bladder screams at me.
10:00 Don’t shower because I’m working from home.
10:13 Do the morning shuffle to get Cinnamon Toasters, the bag equivalent of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. In the morning I can’t pick my feet all the way up off the ground, so I’m forced to shuffle. Ever notice that cereal is better and more classy in a box, but the opposite is true for wine?
10:15 Shuffle back to the bathroom to get my robe. I’ve become addicted. I never used to be able to understand robe wearing. Now I get it. I really get it.
10:48 Sit down at the computer with honest intention of working.
10:59 Have now watched 14 Youtube videos
11:34 Give myself a pep talk about how “I can do this!” and how ” I’m a work from home beast.”
12:00 Tyra break. Today she has on women who admit to watching too much Jersey Shore. It is riveting.
12:18 Contemplate whether I think Tyra looks more like a cobra or…yep, a cobra.
1:23 Have a conversation with my dogs about how lucky they are that they don’t have to work
2:20 Yep, my conversation with my dogs lasted about an hour. Convince myself that getting on Facebook will somehow help me with work
2:24 Not understand why Facebook keeps asking me to reconfirm my e-mail address when I have done it several times over the last three months
2:31 Sit intrigued to learn that my friend Jesse is Topenga, if he was a character from Boy Meets World
3:42 Lunch break. I justify it somehow
3:51 Peel a clementine using just one peel
4:06 Freak out for a minute staring at my palm trying to figure out which is my lifeline, because the all look short.
4:11 Respond to a work e-mail. Booyah!
4:13 Wrap another successful day of work with a swig of milk out of the carton.
Next prompt: What is located directly behind you?
