No Time for Syrup!

October 8, 2008 - Summer Wallace-Minger

This morning, I woke up and felt strangely refreshed. I congratulated myself on going to bed a little earlier than usual, rolled over ... and realized I'd forgotten to set the alarm clock, and it was 7:30 a.m.

7:30 a.m.

Not good.

The kids had to be at school by 7:50 a.m. In fact, today was the day the school had scheduled to participate in the United Way walkathon, and if they were late, they were going to miss the bus to the track.

It took seventeen minutes to yank the kids out of bed, dress them and push them out the door.

For breakfast, I toasted frozen waffles and shoved them in their hands.

"But, Mommy," my daughter said, "there's no syrup."

"Syrup? Syrup?" I drew myself to my full height of 63 inches. "There's no time for syrup!"

And it ends up raining. I bet the walkathon was canceled.

In work-related news, Jeremy&Jason thought they were being snarky today, complaining that if they said anything it would get in my blog. It would have been way snarkier if they had pulled out their cellphones and pretended to call Alex. They need to bring the snark, cuz I'm not feeling it.  

They seriously can not come to work dressed like the Three Muskeeteers and expect me not to make fun of them. They were all wearing the same outfit today.

John from Circulation broke from the pack and did his own thing, but he's my favorite, anyway.

I was reminded that I should be nicer to Alex today, since he's the publisher and my boss and stuff.

It would have been way cooler if Alex had said something like: "I have the power of life or death over you! MWHAHAHAHAHA!"

Y'know ... like an evil overlord.

But Alex fails at being evil; he's too genial. It's unnatural. No person goes around being that cheerful in real life. One of these days, he's gonna snap and it's gonna be beautiful. Mark my words.

Besides that, I don't think Alex can cackle.
