I'm so excited to link up with Alison and Ado for their one year blogiversary! Happy Anniversary, ladies! I chose this post from my archives because it is the first time I ever included drawings in a blog post. I'm sure you will all agree I have a future as an artist if my dream of being an author doesn't work out. Also, it's possible that parts of this conversation only took place in my head. I often have a hard time distinguishing the world inside my head from real life.
Today my boss beeped me on my phone (our office is very large; his desk is located about twenty feet from mine and is separated by like, two sets of walls; we would waste a lot of time if we actually got up from our desks to talk to each other).
Boss: Are you busy?
Me: Uh, yeah. I’m reading a blog. And when I’m finished I have, like, eight more to read.
Boss: Well I need you to do to do this Very Long and Complicated Report for me.
Me: That’s sounds an awful lot like work.
Boss: That’s because you’re at work.
Me: Oh. Well wouldn’t you rather I draw you a cute picture of a giraffe eating a banana?
Me: How about an angry monkey scolding the giraffe for stealing his stash of bananas?
Boss: No. I really need you to do this report.
Me: Hold on a sec. Let me play a song for you.
Today I don’t feel like doing anything
I just wanna lay in my bed
Don’t feel like picking up my phone
So leave a message at the tone
Cause today I swear I’m not doing anything
Boss: Are you going to do this report or not?
Me (perking up): I have a choice?
Boss: Yeah, do this report or get fired.
Me: Those are terrible choices.
Boss: Yeah, well life is full of terrible choices
Me: Couldn't one of the choices involve looking at pictures of cute puppies on the Internet?
Boss: So I guess you're going with the 'get fired' option?
Me: Fine. I’ll do it.
