Imagine this…

You have had a busy day at the office; the boss moaned, the boss’ boss moaned, even the guy who you’ve never seen in your life moans… You can’t bitch and moan, because if you do you’re “setting a bad example for your team”. Now imagine a full week of this. Clearly, the last thing you need is to come home after 14 hours days and do the ironing, right???!!! Now what you need is the new and improved “oh so perfect” boyfriend! Now… allow me to present some of the advantages of owning such boyfriend:

  • He costs almost nothing to keep – to keep him fit and able to do all the chores around the house, you must not overfeed or let him overindulge. No one wants to watch him take 2 hours to iron your shirt.
  • He can multitask – what do you mean you can’t hoover and make tea at the same time???!!!
  • He keeps you entertained – have you ever watched a grown man dusting with a feather puff? Trust me, it’s hilarious!
  • Your house always looks spotless, no matter how much mess you make – the dress in the living room?  The shoes in the study? Your laptop in the washing machine? No worries! The “oh so perfect” boyfriend is here to help!
  • You can take him out on social engagements – as long as you follow the first point to the letter, you have a winner!
  • He doesn’t drink, burp, fart or fall asleep in front of the T.V. – but won’t judge if you do 😉
  • He earns twice as much as you – D’OH…. who’s going to keep you in the style you have become accustomed to?
  • It can last a lifetime – just follow the instructions and enjoy!

Now wake up! It’s time to do the dishes! 😀

A must read!

I know Everything About Everything. They say there are few certainties in life. Not true. Your mom is always right about how special you are, your dad is always right about a guy’s intention, and you can’t trust someone who doesn’t drink coffee. Europeans are condescending. No one is interested in hearing about your dream last night unless there is sex involved. No one will admit to being a fan of Train, but most people will sing along to it alone in their car. People who wear sung … Read More

Have you ever woke up at 4 am, screaming “OMG!!! I haven’t sent the file to Miles!”??  No? I have… this morning.
I am not sure if I was dreaming that Miles* was being fired over my slip up, or I was just not sleeping at all, but one thing I know is that I had the sinking feeling you get when you realize you have done something BAD…

Miles* is a good guy, competent and intelligent; we work well together although we look after separate departments. He has been employee of the year since he joined the company, about 135 years ago, and he is determined to clear any red items on his agenda. He is also a “I’m going to hit the panic button now, before they even realize there is a problem” kind of guy. Bless… What can I say? It works for the guy… He walks into his bosses office and just tells the truth… I mean… who does that???!!!  😀 You can’t help liking Miles though… stick and stones won’t definitely break him – he’s used to it!

So… as I was saying… It was 4.12 am and I suddenly broke into a cold sweat. I could see myself in front of his boss, trying to wriggle my way out of the very sticky situation. I jumped out of bed, grabbed my laptop, and in a furious frenzy I started typing away, calculating, formulating, chart..ing, generally just desperately trying to save my backside. I must have been quite loud, as the “oh, so perfect boyfriend” got up wondering what all the commotion was. I dismissed him with a (not so) royal gesture and barked “MAKE ME SOME COFFEE! THE STRONG ONE”. He looked at me, dismissed me with a gesture and went back to sleep. (Note to self: I must demote him to the rank of “just boyfriend”) I continued my furious race to finish the spreadsheet, I had a calculator in one hand, a pen in the other and I think I was typing with my toes… It’s still blurry. Oh, did I mention that I had to be at work for 6 am?? 

5.55 am – pulled in the car park. I looked din the mirror and realized I had toothpaste in my hair… at least I brushed my teeth… The security guard waves me in “you look like you’ve been dragged through a hedge”… I had, when I dropped my laptop under the bush in my front garden. No, no… no need to feel sorry for me, I “choose this path” ( the Mother sermon ,11:34)

6.00 am – at my desk, with big grin on my face! I had done it! Finished and emailed the report to Miles. Now I can sit back and… WHAT???!!!

Don’t worry about file. Forgot – boss not in today.

 I used to like Miles…
