This is an ode to all to the email/message forwards about missing school, missing college, missing the 60’s, missing the 70s, and the 80s ,90’s, the yesterday, the today. Etc. Instead we are all now tied to a grind, bad bosses and what-nots.
Well! I don’t miss you!!!
(Oops did I just ostracize myself!)
Maybe I should try a little harder…
Nope, I still don’t miss you.
Damn! I said it again!
While we are at it, let me also apologize..I am sorry. (Truly I am.) I don’t regret the Google! I would have had no clue what a “Gedankenexperiment” if not. (Did you just Google?)
I love waking up to my crazy, cooky alarm, I love running in a frenzy to work, I love the aroma of business when I enter the building.
I love switching on my laptop.I love the heady rush of fixing problems. I love barking orders or sometimes getting barked at. I love pouring thru’ excel sheets with my colleagues. I love flitting madly in and outta meeting rooms.
I love making sense.
I love the tasteless cafeteria. I love complaining about it even more! I love trying to talk to my non-English clients. I love to laugh with my team, I love to get out an hour early only to hear incessant panic calls and plug back-in rapidly.
I love seeing the bank balance bloat at the end of the month. I love to pick on the silly mistakes with my Finance team.
I love it all! (I think I might be hunted and shot down after this!)
There you go folks!
So all you lovely people who don’t have time to stop and smell the rose; please STOP and do it just that. I promise you this - Our world will continue to spin.
As for the rest of us; Move it! It’s BAU!
