Just got home from a work event the night before our big event. You're all wishing me lots of luck (and money for our organization), right?

I have been pretty busy and will likely be zonked tomorrow night, too, but here are a couple of funny stories to tide you over before my next rant...

1. Mr. RK's suit went to the dry cleaner. The pick-up slip said "One Man Suit." Obviously an abbreviation (or a variation of English), but we both thought this was hilarious! He came home with the suit and said, "I am no longer a boy."

2. My boss had to move his spouse to another table to make room at the head table at our event for a person from our national organization. He asked me, "Would you e-mail K and let him know that I've bumped my wife to make room for A?"

I e-mailed and the reply was thus: "It's C's business when and where he bumps his wife!"

I laughed so hard, had to explain it to my boss ("What? What's so funny?") and actually blushed. I was so embarrassed - because frankly, I don't want to picture my boss bumping anyone - that I ran out for a decaf.

Which brings me to...

3. I felt especially edgy and mouthy, and realized that my coffee, although I requested decaf, was loaded.

I wrote back to K that he was very naughty for a Republican.

He said he'd take that as a compliment.

As Tigger would say, TTFN! Ta ta for now!

So you blame the coffee for you being edgy and mouthy then? ;)

I hope when I take my suit into the dry cleaners they write "One Man Suit" or even "boy suit" will do.

Hmm, I'll wager that Mr. RK stopped being a boy the moment he met you, RK. ;-)

The bumping thing is pretty funny! :) I'm sure you'll be glad when the event is over - I always am when I'm working at an event.

The story of your Boss's bumping his wife was hilarious.

Thanks for sharing!

Isn't organizing fun?

And on a tangent..your picture reminded me of a grat You Tube mash up of I think the group is called Souljah Boy and they have some lyrics I really can't make out but they set the whole thing to Winnie the Pooh episodes.
I found it mildly entertaining.

Hope it was a big success...
Bumping and all... :D

I like you off decaf!

Btw, I love that e-mail reply. Witty and hilarious! I miss folks like that at work; the people I deal with are mostly psycho and pathetic.
