I’ve been busy, I swear! I don’t actually have any other excuse for missing two days in a row of posting.
Yesterday morning, as I lay asnug in my bed with thoughts of my wonderful day off dancing in my head, my phone rang.
Me: (groggily) “Hello?”
Agnes (my supervisor): “Boochen?”
Me: (still not quite awake) “Mmm hmm?”
Agnes: “It’s Agnes.”
Me: “Mmm. Hey, Agnes. What’s up?” At this point I’m starting to think they’re short and she’s about to ask me if I’d like to work today.
Agnes: “We were expecting you five minutes ago.”
Me: “No. I’m off today. Aren’t I? Fuck. I could swear I’m off today. Really?” Now I’m walking out to the other room to check my schedule.
Agnes: “Nope, you’re on today.”
Me: “Fuck, seriously? Oh, yeah… there it is on my calendar. I’ll be in as soon as I can.”
I managed to get there only 45 minutes late and through a variety of circumstances ended up staying well past my scheduled time. Like, a ten-hour day. Tired and sore, I plopped down on the couch and didn’t even touch the computer last night.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
