I guess today was National Walk at Lunchtime Day or some damn thing, sponsored by the company that carries our health insurance at work. So aboot 150 of us gathered in the front parking lot and walked for 20 minutes (2 laps around the building) and then enjoyed a nice bag lunch supplied by the company. Was a nice, invigorating midday break. A bit
nipply nippy but that made it easier to keep up a healthy pace…
I’m enjoying my new dental work and the novocaine has worn off finally. And the wrinkles are back. Dammit.
Remember awhile ago when I told you aboot the
racist lady woman at work who declared that Obama just could not become President because”she would not have a (whispered) black man” in the White House? And how sickened and disgusted I was by her remark? Well. I must share this with you and I hope you appreciate it as much as I did. It is pretty damn near priceless.
Yesterday she came to work wearing a Howard University sweatshirt. I kid you not. I asked her if she’d ever been to Howard. She replied that no, she’d never even heard of it. She’d found the shirt on a clearance table at Steve & Barry’s. One of those moments when you wish that you had
access to closed-circuit televison that went out all over the world a camera… When someone pointed out to her that Howard was an all-Black university, she had the nerve to say (you guessed it) “That must be why it was on clearance.” I wanted so badly to enlighten her to the fact that she didn’t deserve to wear the shirt but I’m not into wasting my time. That’s all I have to say aboot that. I’ll not soon forget how she looked walking in, all proud, wearing her new “bargain”. It’s a shame it will most likely never get worn again.
