Fridays are interesting days…they are not really the end of anything, because you still have two days to go until the week is over, the work doesn’t really stop, because you go home and there is plenty to do around the house, and they are not really the beginning of anything else, but the two days called weekend… the fun actually starts on Monday every week, anyway…fun running into that colleague that you can’t stand, fun waiting at the stop sign behind a beginner who is afraid to get to the other side, and gets you, and the rest of the line behind you, stuck behind him and terribly late…fun listening to that power-that-be talking down to you about things they don’t even know the names for…let alone what they represent, fun having to go back to the drawing board… But also, fun making little miracles happen for others around you, watching their smiles, their eyes getting bigger and bigger at the sight or news of whatever you did…fun changing the world, one room at the time!
It has been a long week, another one of its kind, and my audit went well, my fever went down, my voice came back – granted I still don’t sound like myself, but I kinda like this new sound; it’s deep and calm, and reassuring…cool! to keep counting my blessings, my presentation on remoting via ipad went well, even if the internet did not cooperate, and I didn’t remote into anything, at least the people were decent not to boo me, and they listened and participated and even gave me their contacts to send them more information; my special media project turned out great, I finished some of the paperwork, found a good number of new solutions to old problems, got the big dogs to chase the bone, and as I was locking my cabinet and doing a last minute visual check of the office, the cell rang… “you still here? you got furniture!” …. and then there was quiet. “you there?” umhm…I think so…
Oh, voluptuous, soft, deep curves! Caramel sweetness! Inviting embrace! Sublime elegance, arrogance and bliss! All mine…finally! My couch was here… with her sisters and brothers, to populate the main office, the lounge, the parent room, and my little cave…Aaaahhhh! At last!
As I ran down the stairs, the man looked at me with great curiosity…I told him to bring it all in, and take it all out, and put it all down! But, first, to take my leathery friend to the cave…where it would be well cared for, and highly appreciated! And Friday ceased to be the end of a long week, and the beginning of the weekend…it just remained a good memory, of when my wish came true when I least expected any miracle… really! who delivers furniture at 5:30 on a Friday night?! To a school?! Well, someone does, and thank you so much for your dedication, sir! Praise you!
May your weekend be filled with just as many enchanting surprises as my Friday turned out to be! And may Friday be just another fun day!
