I’m glad tomorrow’s Friday. I’m happy to be physically back at work, but it’s not been easy. One of my co-workers has fallen for the Axe cologne nonsense. I did manage to refrain from telling him he smells like someone who’s trying too hard. (Plus ten for only thinking it, not saying it. Yay.) I moved back into my private cubicle. I think I’ll release myself from the unreasonable expectation of working within scenting distance of others and remain there.
My mini trampoline was appropriated in my absence. Someone else has clued in on the joys of speed jogging when frustrated. I asked him if he knew when he was most likely to need it. It turned out to be a question he needs a few work days to ponder over. He’ll let me know next week but will continue using it until then. I started a new project today, so I’m too excited to be frustrated, anyway. I have so many ideas, and the client is cool.
I’m going to debug them over the weekend at home. My cat likes me to carry her when I pace while brainstorming. I think it’s because I talk to her the whole time. (It makes thinking out loud more fun.) M. is on his way home now. When I was in shutdown mode, he contacted my Prodigy’s mom to make sure they were well after the earthquake. (She’s fine, as is her fam.) His initiative awes me. He would have been a good Army officer. He’s Super Adult Man. Hm. Lame superhero name. I’ll work on it.
I ran before work this morning. I believe there’s an astonishing number of people who have companion and service animals in my vicinity. It’s awesome to me because I think everyone needs a companion and/or service animal to cope with being human. M. is thinking about getting a dog at the humane society. I told him I’ll love him more if he does. (I didn’t troubleshoot this comment before I hit send.) 🤦🏽♀️
He laughed, then asked what it will mean if he doesn’t get a dog. Whoops. I responded with a neutral emoticon because I couldn’t see a way out of that hole in real time. (Another perk of texting.) I’m pretty sure I make M. feel intellectually confident. 😂😂😂 Glad to do my part. I’m off to await his arrival.
