Definitely time for the weekend to begin... [Jan. 9th, 2009|03:31 pm]

My internal editor has apparently shut down and is taking an early dismissal.

I just got out of a meeting where, while describing a recent contract struggle, I dropped the F-bomb.

As in "and then I said **** you, sign the damn thing".

And not 15 minutes later, when my boss was describing a new process and a colleague was expressing trepidation that the form would just make the whole process harder and MORE tedious, and were 45 dropdowns really all that helpful, I said "We could make a wet dream complicated."

Clearly, the sudden reduction of
"omigodamIgoingtogetthesedamncontractsdoneontime" tension caused an osmotic flow that took my internal editor with it.

Thankfully, it was a small meeting with just my immediate team and all right, it was sort of worth it to see my boss covering his face with his hands, quaking with laughter and unable to speak.

But...time to lay low, shut up and get out of here without any further embarrassing communication.

If you fail at this worthy attempt, could you please keep us posted?

Thanks.

You're my new hero - I've wanted to say things in meetings before like. Excuse me - you realize your son is high right now or the infamous - he's not Special Ed. You have never told him no and made it stick. Be the freakin parent.
