Story of My Life

posted by on June 8 at 16:47 PM

I’m sure all the Sloggers have been wondering, “Where is Mike in MO? Have his special Freaky Friday privileges been revoked?” No, I’ve been sequestered in a room with my boss all day going over shit so mundane I wouldn’t bore my worst enemy with it.

Which brings me to the nature of the headline. The story of my life is: sad irony.

Two weeks ago I was so bored with my job I accepted a new position with more responsibility. I thought, “I love slogging and reading ThinkProgress all day and geting paid for it, but the grown-up thing to do is take on more shit and get paid.”

Sure enough, now I’m busy as hell, I never get to slog, and to top it all off, I am chosen as a “prolific commentor” and bestowed a rare privilege to Slog, BUT I CAN’T! I’m so jealous of all the fun my fellow Freaky Friday Sloggers have been having.

I only hope I’m unemployeed next time I’m handed the keys to The Slog…

Man. One post, and this is all you contribute? What did you have for breakfast today? What is your cat doing currently (or minutes ago)?

Careful with that unemployment wish. I've become unemployed for the second year in a row, just in time to chaperon my kid(s) on the annual field trip to the zoo. While going to the zoo was fun, being unemployed sucks (unless you can afford it).

i sincerely hope that there is NEVER-EVER-EVER another "freaky *" ever again.
