Fake the Funk to Facilitate the Fraud
This is my favorite quote ever in the history of the world. It is a Jiminism. (A quote made up by my hubby, Jim) Not only is it fun to say, but it can really describe some situations well, like yesterday for me. It is really funny to say it to co-workers and watch their facial expression go from blank to confused, then out comes the word: "What?" EVERY TIME. I had an OBGYN appointment yesterday that I forgot about. I looked at my wall calendar at 12:45pm and the calendar said the appt. was at 1pm. HOLY CRAP! Not that I wouldn't mind missing one of THOSE appointments, but it is nearly impossible to reschedule and I'm out of birth control pills....yikes. So, I do Mach 4 trying to get there on time, and I get a call on my cell phone right as I'm pulling into the parking lot saying "can we reschedule you, the Dr. had a delivery". How dare he deliver a damn baby during my appointment! Now, I told my boss I would be gone for 2 hours. Do I go back to work and tell him what actually happened? HELL NO. I take a nap in my car. Faking the funk to facilitate the fraud.
