Tripping Back Now To Places You’ve Been To? … Nah, I’ll Pass

Here’s My Desk … BTW … Wouldn’t Wanna Be Ya!

A few short years ago—prior to 2011—I never would have believed that I could have such a change in perspective.

Today I am very grateful to have been forcibly ejected from my so called ‘career’.

I didn’t realize it back then, but I had become like the frog boiled in the water. Back then I thought I was enjoying the heck out of my life’s calling.

Excuse me, while I grab a napkin and wipe up the coffee that I snorted through my nose just as I said that.

Tick Tock, Tick Tock

My, my! How the passage of time time and stepping away from things changes one’s perspectives.Today, there is nothing in me—not even at the deepest cellular levels—that would ever desire to become enmeshed in that whole Tower Of Babel and quagmire again.

You’ve Been Replaced By A Younger Model

Bless her heart, the precious little darling who was once my administrative assistant went on to become my successor—poor baby.

Knowing that I’m the motherly type, you’re probably wondering if I have any parting words for Darling Diane.

I appreciate you asking. And yes … I do.

My parting words would have to be “May you be granted a double portion of everything that goes with that black hole.

Oh yes, and “Bless your heart” as they say in The South.  LOL

Sorry Darlin’

I suppose that it takes a bit of age and being extremely tired before it begins to sink in.

Finally one day you ‘get it’ and figure out that the euphemism being a CEO (aka Kindergarten Cop) in charge of Dysfunction Junction isn’t a badge of honor—nor was it ever anything to aspire to.

But then, that’s just my somewhat jaded and never-to-be-humble opinion.

Today, I say may the road forever rise up to meet her. I hope she enjoys the daylights out of ‘The Chair’ and all that goes along with it. LOL

So in closing, please take a moment and join James Corden and me as we bow down in deference to the inauguration and installation of a new Mother Nature for the kindergarten class.

But don ‘t worry, dear, soon you’ll be where I am. Because sooner or later … ‘She’s gettin’ us all’.

(Silent footsteps) Tripping back now to places you’ve been to
(Crowdin’ me) You’re wonderin’ what you’re gonna find
(Sudden darkness) You know you’ve been wrong and it won’t be long
(But I can see) Before you leave ’em all far behind
.
‘Cause it’s the new Mother Nature takin’ over
It’s the new splendid lady come to call
It’s the new Mother Nature takin’ over
She’s gettin’ us all, yeah, she’s gettin’ us all
..
