I'm Happy As A Pig In Excrement & Gangsta Dr. Suess
The last two weeks have been somewhat (trying) for the Hobbitzes. On the same day that my wife was offered a nursing position that she had been aggressively pursuing, I would arrive at my place of employment to find out that "your (my) position with the company is being eradicated, as the company has been forced to make the difficult decision, in it's best interest, to move in a different direction." This is not verbatim, but it is close enough. There are many colorful ways that I want to express my gratitude toward the company, but for now, I am going to remain silent. (i.e. allow my frustrations to crescendo, and then proceed to rip said company.) As if being laid off was not bad enough, you might as well add a root canal, a coming wisdom tooth removal, full time preschool (my daughter, not me) and the stress that comes along with combing Monster.com for employment when my field of "expertise" is already critically saturated with people that are much brighter than me. And, just for grins and giggles, add the O.C.D. and, viola, a steaming pile o' excrement that only a plumber could appreciate.
While in the midst of piecing this post together, I ran across a few things that reminded me of that saying that goes something like, "no matter (how bad) you think that you may have IT, there is always somebody that has IT worse." So, I digress....
* it should be noted that the victim is fine. It was deemed a, non lethal-venomless bite, but experts were not able to verify the species of Satan spawn, as it wiggled it's way back down to the bowels of hell before it could be apprehended and tested. It is believed to be a bite from either, a garter snake(non-venomous) or a copperhead (venomous). (I, for one, am somewhat confused.)
