Day 12- Lunch, Conf. calls, Free Happy Hours

by agoodnow

At work.  I love it here.  Conference calls are the greatest thing in the world.   I am listening to a presentation on Retirement Benefits modeling.  Apparently old people have to work longer to pay their bills due to a lack of sufficient retirement income.   Yep, this is what I do for a living.  

I am so hungry right now.  I’m not sure if it is the working out or the lack of calories from drinking, but I could eat my left arm at the moment.  Only 44 minutes left on the conf. call  and I’m going to ravage the all you can eat salad place.  They give you unlimited toppings.   By the time I’m done the thing weighs over 3 pounds.  It borders on gluttony, but I rationalize it by maintaining that it is still a salad.   Regardless of the 2,750 calories that are in it.

Still no caffeine.  Today makes a week. 

I have decided that my first day of drinking will be Feb. 27th.  It is my fraternity’s Founder’s Day and there is no way I am going to be the only sober person in that crowd.  Not a chance in hell. 

I won a free 3 hour open bar this Thursday.  The guy from the bar called me and was really excited to tell me how drunk I could get.  Of course I would win 3 hours of free drinking while I am staying sober for 2 months.   Needless to say, I’ll be avoiding that temptation.

The conference call has now gone on to tell me that employees are being asked to do more for less money.   Really?  This is shocking news.
