Poor Biff’s Almanac — Et tu, Monday?
Another Monday is behind us.
A word of advice: Don’t ever let Monday circle around and get behind you. Always keep Monday within eyesight.
It was not a bad day as Mondays go. I am still suffering from a cold … or allergies. It is hard to tell which. It all started last Thursday morning when I thought to myself, “Hey, I think I’ll take off on Friday.” This was because I had put in a boatload of hours last week and had my 40 hours in by Thursday noon.
Well, as soon as I’d said that, even though it was an internal monologue, the cold (or allergy) goblins said, “What? Who said that? It’s showtime!”
Long story short, by the time I headed home Thursday after work, my throat was killing me. I spent all day Friday in bed, laid out with whatever this is. Saturday and Sunday is just a fog of hazy memories. So, my long weekend turned out to be no weekend at all.
The moral of this story is: If you’re planning on taking a day off of work, don’t tell anyone about it … not even yourself. Those darn eavesdropping allergy goblins will ruin everything for you.
