Where I value my health over my day job.

I had already reached my destination when I realized what I had done.

My thought process follows:

This is Wednesday. It is 11 AM. Don’t you have a staff meeting?

Nah, I won’t worry about it. I already walked the fifteen minutes over here. They’ll understand. Besides, when I told people where I was going, no one said a word. No one objected.

Sit around and wait. Sit around and wait. THEN my name is finally called.

Oooh, some young eye candy is going to help me. Don’t mind me, I’m just a 31-year-old woman about ready to reach her sexual peak of 32. Yeah, that’s the ticket. But you’re still eye candy…and much younger than me…and I’m married.

Finished already? You did that all without any problem? I’m shocked. That’s never happened before.


Oh come on sickos, I had my blood drawn in preparation for next week’s endo appointment. The eye candy used a butterfly needle as soon as he saw the veins he had to work with – I didn’t have to say a word. Got the vein with the first try, without pain and very little bruising. (You rule, young eye candy!)

And no one seemed to mind that I had a major brain fart and skipped out of the weekly staff meeting.

    Sounds like a good excuse to skip a staff meeting to me!
