Joke of the Week

As an attorney in a major New Mexico law firm, I have many colleagues who work long hours. However, the reputation of one of my partners’ workaholic ways even extended beyond the office. He not only had to leave work early one day because of a medical problem, but was also told by his doctor to stay home until the end of the week. My colleague grudgingly agreed to comply. In the middle of the week, our receptionist received a call for him. She announced that the partner was out of the office until Friday.
"Good," the caller said. "That’s all I wanted to know." It was my partner’s doctor.

Happy Birthday, Terry!

Happy Birthday, Terry!
Okay, here is how the day was supposed to go......

Go cross the kiddies
Go to school and volunteer
Go to the tire place and get new tires
Go to the store to buy the cake stuff
Go to school and have lunch with my kids
Go home and make the cake, get everything ready
Go cross the kiddies
Take my kids to the library
Go home, wait for Terry to get home, surprise him.

NOW, how it REALLY happened.....

Go cross the kiddies
Go to school and volunteer
Go to the tire place....they have every tire EXCEPT the ones I need. Dude tells me he can have them to me in an hour
Go home (SHOULD have gone to the store, but I am an idiot) wait for the tire dude to call
Go to the school to have lunch with my kids. Tire dude calls me (mind you TWO hours later) and tells me the tires are ready.
Take the car in. Pay cash for all but the last 20% of the bill. TRY to put it on an account....lender wants me to REAPPLY for my account. Waiting...waiting.... I have to go cross the kiddies!!! So, since I look SO trustworthy and since I work for the police department, he lets me go
Go cross the kiddies
Tire dude calls and says everything has been approved, come BACK and sign. Okay, been to the tire place THREE times by now.
On my way home, Bren calls, he missed the bus
Go pick him up
Go get my kids take them to the library
Go to the store to get the cake stuff
By now, Terry is home, the surprise is ruined and I am exhausted. We eat the pizza I bought AND THEN
Terry and I go to the store where he BUYS HIS OWN BIRTHDAY CAKE!!!!!
Go home, max out on sugar, go to bed
By the way, Bev...he probably didn't get exactly what he wanted (wink, wink) but we did get him his very own Ute's Snuggie.

SO Happy Birthday, Terry! What a day!!!!
