(Good) News That Makes You Cry a Little…

Usually when my cell phone rings at work I don’t answer it  –  it’s unprofessional and rude to have personal conversations at the office, IMO.

Ok, maybe if I worked with more than 3 people, the tv wasn’t tuned into ESPN all day, I wore something other than jeans & a hoodie, and if anybody really gave a shit… then that’d be true.

So of course when my bff-since-age-2 called today, I picked up.

S : “What’s up”

L : “Just leaving work”  (she works for the same company I do, in the Ohio office)

S : “Coooool…”  [type type type, turn down Pandora radio a little, search desk for nail file]

L : “I have some good news”

This is where any normal female’s brain would auto-assume some form of engagement/baby/those-shoes-I’ve-been-dying-for-are-finally-on-sale excitement.  My mushy female brain was too lazy to try and conjure anything up (I’m still blaming Bikram) so instead of guessing…

S : “What is it”

I know, I’m a real thrill to talk with on the phone.

L : “[bossman] gave the OK for me to work out there in May.  FOR TWO WEEKS.”

I literally jumped out of my chair and “Shut up SHUT UP shut up!  This is so exciting!  OMG”-d around the office.  Yes, my coworkers already thought I was crazy, so it’s no big.

L & my sister were already planning to stay with me the week before the bachelorette party, but now they’ll BOTH be out here for a full two weeks, and L doesn’t have to take any vacation time!  Seriously, next time I say I hate my job, punch me in the face.




B, are you ready for this?  I’ll sign off on a man-cation of your choice if you need to get out of the Estrogen House for a while…

Counting down to May 14th…
