More thoughts. On a Thursday, no less. Four thoughts... how random is that?
1. So... I am in charge of my group, the beloved Tob.acco group today.
"Check it out, ya'll," I holler, my hands raised in victory. "We not working in the lab today. We're gonna work it all out and have a 4 hour meeting at the Piedmont Park, down by the pool area, down by the swings!"
One of my coworkers peered at me curiously. "Send an email," he said.
Uh, I see how folks are. They want a paper trail. Not gonna happen.
2. I have a bunch of maintenance to do today. Oil changes, column changes, etc. I made sure to wear clothes that I can get good and dirty. Oil always gets past my lab coat for some reason.
3. I have been working on reports for 3 weeks. My boss, who is new said something special. "I really like the way you write." That make me smile big like Celie. I am glad of that. It is hard switching between technical scientific writing and creative writing. There have been times that I have read some of my workplace writing and said "Gee, this reads like a story."
Let's just say I enjoy creative writing more. Sigh.
4. There is some mention that we may start analyzing marij.uana. My eyes glazed over and I got the shakes thinking about it. I told my boss, "Look here, man... I use to smoke weed. Ain't smoked in 20 years, but ain't no WAY I'm gonna work with weed. No way!"
Oh how folks laugh. Oh how folks laugh every time I say this.
It ain't funny. Can't they see the fear in my eyes?
I'd be like Pookie from New Jack City.
Swap out the crack pipe for a fat blunt and that's me.
Because Birthdays - It's my birthday. I had a whole post written. Being all kinds of introspective. I decided to delete it. I'm not in the mood to be deep. It's my birthday.
