Clone Me!

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.

I am endlessly trying to make sense of a world that has completely and unapologetically lost its mind.

    Aww!! Dove has a 'birthday brother!' My little guy turns 3 today! Happy Birthday Dove (and Logan!)

  3. turning 4.. wooosh… happy, happy birthday dove..

    and yep! wouldn't a clone be brilliant.. i would leave one at home.. to cook, clean, organize.. keep everything running smoothly…

    and then i would just come to work.. OR- if i didn't feel like working one day.. i would stay home and she could come to work…

    Mmmm.. wonder if i like this idea a bit much!!!

    Hey, you swiped my idea! For years now, I've wanted to clone *several* of me – a couple to do my job, one to hang out with the kids, one to read and write, and maybe a bonus clone to tend the garden. If you figure out the magic technology, do let me know.

    Hope you had a fun birthday party. I'm sure it was happy and boisterous!
