Tomorrow, I’m going to be happy.
No, this is not some random new-age, positive-thinking shit. I hate that. Back where I’m from, they let you be who you are. No new-agey talk about organic, , hot yoga, sheep intestines, weird African berries and vegan crap.
I’m going to be happy because I’ve made sure of it.
Tomorrow, when Shelly Parsons strolls into the office, her skinny little ass will get glued to her chair: literally. No slimming walks around the office for Miss SmartyPants tomorrow, unless she chooses to lose her skirt, of course. No bracing talk at my cubicle encouraging me to eat healthy, not McDonalds cookies, with her nose pinched in, her plucked eyebrows curled. How does she expect me to do that on my pay, I ask you?
Tomorrow, I’ll be happy, and my boss, Miss Parsons, will be sad: though my fired ass would still be six times the size of hers.
Because my dears, sometimes that is just how the cookie crumbles. You take care now.
