Quick! I need a clone! And what unfathomable joy would be introduced to the world with more than one of me?
Don’t answer that, but hear me out.
Work has been unbelievably, impossibly busy, and it would take more than one of me…possibly a dozen of me…to finish everything that’s been dumped on my to-do list and in my in-box lately. Work talk is boring, however, so I will sum it up with an actual statement made my boss as she handed me another project to take over:
“I know this isn’t really your job, but I’m afraid if I give it to someone else, it just won’t get done.”
Seriously? Can I have a significant portion of everyone’s salary who could not be trusted to do what they are paid to do?
It’s not all work and no play, though, since tonight Gary and I will be wrapping birthday presents for Dove, who turns 4 years wise today!
Happy birthday, Dove, and enjoy the day while you can, because later today you will inevitably be subjected to Daddy and me singing “happy birthday” over the phone, and I can’t promise either one of us can carry a tune.
