- Wedding: October 2011
Background: I did some temp work for my mom out of highschool as her secretary. An Engineer (now a mentor of mine), rented an office in the same space. While I was temping there, he got me to do things for him, and eventually hired me on as his own. Sent me off to work with his son who owns one of the most popular night clubs in our city. They are VERY wealthy people. It didn’t work out being his sons assistant, so he got me a job in Oil & Gas, and I’ve been here ever since.
So, I’m sitting at my desk, BORED to tears, when his son walks by my office, stops and comes in to chat. Just the usual. Hey, how ya doing, what’s new?
Because I want to be super cool, you know, I’m a flipping rock star, I act super casual.
Him: Hey trouble, how’s it going?
Me: Oh you know, good, how are you?
Him: I’m good, what’s new?
Me: I’m getting married!
Him: Congrats! What else?
Me: oh you know… bored… with life…. gotta change that…errr… that’s what marriage is for… er… um.. uh.. you know.. planning it… I hate wedding planning…
Him: Oh yea….
A. I’m at WORK, I should not be admitting to my ex boss (he’s reitred)’s son that I’m BORED.
B. Marriage fixes boredom? SINCE WHEN? I clearly, unknowingly, took drugs this afternoon.
What the hell!?
