And a Carriage for my Luggage

We survived Phoenix, The Funasaurus purchased new movies, I didn’t drink as heavily as I had planned, and Sugar wasn’t even hateful when we got home. Tatum didn’t even seem to have noticed that we were gone, he was just like, “Mouse!Mouse?Mouse.Mouse!Mouse: MOUSE!Mouse?” when we walked in the door. Which is a typical evening for him. Sugar has been more clingy and “oh how sad I am. I was so alone,” in her demeanor, and I feel bad, because that was only four and a half days. And in two months, we’re going to be gone for seven.

That’s right, we’re going on our honeymoon! Finally! Hooray! The universe has smiled upon me. (Momentarily. The tickets are bought. We’ll see if we run into a freak hurricane.) We’re headed to a whole week of umbrella drinks and Caribbean sun. I may not come back. Likely because I will have fried myself to a crisp, in another futile attempt at getting “tan.”

The sad part is that for some silly reason, my boss thinks I’m going to WORK between now and the end of April, despite the fact that I clearly explained to him that I’m going on my honeymoon. It seems slightly unreasonable to me that he would think I’d be able to concentrate on anything else.

Oh yay for April honeymoons!!! And with any luck your boss will reassess his highly improbable expectations and you can spend the next two months dreaming of tropical drinks served in coconut shells!

Melissa said...

Yeah! Conrats on the Honeymoon! Please drink a fruity tropical concoction for me while you are there. Or two, or three, or four, or.... In any case I am super excited for you! Glad you survived the weekend!

How annoying the fantasy life of work can be, interrupting as it does our real purpose which is to enjoy every moment. Better find a mouse-tossing, full-of-sympathy cat sitter quick.

Lily said...

So are you like me? Turning into a cooked lobster everytime you try getting a tan??hahaha!

Also, I beleive Tatum is clearly ready for Mouse detox....
This fixation is getting out of control!
Have you tried Catnip?

Umbrella rum drinks, clear, blue, warm water, white sand beaches . . .

Color me green with envy

Angela- I'm glad you understand.
:-)

Melissa- Shalom, baby! Any upcoming travel plans for you guys?

Pauline- Work ALWAYS gets in the way of my good times.

Lily- Oh yes, it's scary how pale I am. Haven't tried catnip, yet, but I'm thinking I might buy a package of condoms, per your experience. ;-)

Diane- Didn't you just get back from a trip to Yellowstone following wolves? Maybe not as tropical, but still just as cool!

Bosses can be so delusional, can't they?
