OK,....no bull....

this photo?.....

........this is a bunch of bull...

This is one of the big guys outside of where I used to work. So seems I've traded a .......wait for it...............................................................................................................................................................................
....lot of bull for getting my ducks in a row!

Bwhaaaahaahah! I totally cracked me up with that one...!

Anyway, today at work, it was quiet. Most Fridays are.

Sacha, my supervisor was doing some "cube-cleaning" (as opposed to house cleaning) and came over and wiped my desk area and we chatted.

Talked abut our week-end plans...

What "chores" needed to be done...

What fun things we were planning..you know, the usual Friday afternoon banter.

She left my cubie and went over to hers to finish up some things...

I started wrapping up my work..writing that last email... packing my lunch containers...

..watering the plant..you know..usual Friday afternoon details..

Closed out of my computer, turned off my phone, grabbed my book, lunch bag and purse and went over to Sacha's cube to say good-bye to all. (it is not unusual that I leave before they do..many nights a few stay later to play "catch-up"..)

Walked out to my car, seeing the parking lot a little emptier, thought- rather snottily.. "well, you know some people squeak out early on Fridays..."

Unusually light traffic on the freeway going home...cruising along at a pretty good clip..

Yeah..this is how traffic should flow on a Friday..not the usual bumper-to-bumper stuff..nice and smooth.....

Radio blaring..me singin' along to the song. Loud. The announcer comes on and says..................

"well it's already getting hot for the 5 O'Clock commute..better get ready for some hot bumper-to-bumper traffic in about a half hour..."

WHAT??????

.......a half hour???? Until 5 o'clock???? What time is it now?????

Then he says, "it's 4:33 on a hot Friday...."

shut . up!!!!!!!!!!

..his voice kinda faded away and all I could focus on (besides the road..safety first!) was the "4:33" part.....

I had, it seems, decided my day was done. It was over. That's that...I'm outta here. (I think I even said that very thing!) No corporate clock was going to tell me to say until my NORMAL exit time...Oh noooooo..

Truth be told..I THOUGHT it WAS 5 o'clock....I "thought" I was leaving at my normal time...I "thought" it was unusual light traffic....

Can you imagine what my boss thought??

"Hey, did she just say "I'm outta here" to me?...and leave?? Are you kidding me??? She just ...left????"

How embarassing....Well, guess I told her, huh..??

Geesh - hope I have a job on Monday.....better decide to go in, oh, like on time..or maybe..I'll just kind of sashay in at the crack of 10:30....

Well, now ...that sounds like a lot of....

I am such a dork.......................
