Nosy Parker

So I meddled in my boss’ life the other day and was told a secret that I didn’t need to hear nor did I want to hear. It was not work related. Anyway, I was embarrassed for meddling, especially when I was just trying to have some ‘light chit-chat’ and he was embarrassed because the secret is kind of huge and in older days would maybe be considered shameful.
So a minute ago I walk up to him while he is speaking with a few other colleagues, to tell him some stuff (that totally doesn’t matter to this story because it is work related) and he says “Well, I just told them the Big Secret”. I say “Oh you did, they know the Big Secret huh”, then he says “Oh no, not that big secret, the secret that we will not be having cake for Rich’s Birthday today. I haven’t told them the other secret”. So I say “That was the Big Secret right”, trying desperately to cover his ass. Which by now looks really strange to the others because why would the boss be telling me Big Secrets? And so he says to them “No the other Big Secret is that my son and his girlfriend will be having a baby and that we just found out they got married in July”. All the jaws drop and lots of conversation ensues (that he did not have time for because he was headed out the door for an important thing). And I am now sitting here wondering if this was my fault or not. Somehow I feel guilty either way. DANG IT, if only I hadn’t Meddled!

How do I get this goodness in me?

It's almost Easter and I dont want to sacrifice my precious sugar filled darlings! Yes, I could have one. But one is not enough.

A little perspective

So…best friend Ricki just called me. And to make a long story short (and to protect the story as I don’t know how happy she would be at me making her life completely public)… she tells me that her Ex- husband has a brain tumor (or a “shadow” I guess is what he is calling it). She said, that he said, that right now, it looks okay. They are keeping an eye on it and so far it is appearing operable if needs be. But, just the fact that this is going on is obviously scary as hell. This is the father of her children and as she explained, once you hear something like that, all the animosity kind of fades into the back ground. She called him and they agreed that from now they are going to act like friends and be good to each other because after all they were best friends for years, they should be able to act something like friends now. How grown up. I can’t even forgive the boy who sat behind me in 3rd grade and pulled at my pigtails!

Shhhh Don't Say It

There are a lot of reasons why I love Rush Limbaugh. But the very biggest reason I love him is because if you are standing in a room full of Democrats all you have to say is the word “Rush” and their eyes pop out of their heads and they start foaming at the mouth.

Get ready to Pee

Okay I laughed so hard watching this! My co-worker was conducting a training session and I couldn’t refrain from laughing out loud, and inadvertently disrupted his class. I think he was angry, but I seriously couldn’t help it. After watching it 3 or 4 times you get to where you can actually see the bird he must be chasing, and the whole story tells itself right down to the very end when the practically caught bird suddenly gets away from him and darts off. Just watch it. Thank you Dooce!
