|See? My nose came clean off...|
In fact, I would have called in sick for work yesterday, but I figured I'd get more rest driving two hours and working all day than I would at home alone with a 3 1/2 year old.
Office services at work has been trying to save money and go green. I'm all for it, except that this included buying 100% recycled "green" tissues. Not only does the term "100% recycled" not sound at all healthy or sanitary next to "tissues", but 100% recycled tissues are (as you may have guessed) about as soft as fine grit sand paper.
Yesterday my red nose and I marched downstairs to kindly suggest that cost savings and going green should not extend to tissues. Chris, the normally very nice boy in Office Services, was not as sympathetic as I might have hoped. Instead he went on and on about saving money and attempting to go green. Blah blah blah.
So, I did what any self-respecting, sore-nosed, snotty, feverish, grumpy person might do, I cursed Chris with a cold. "Mark my words," I said between sniffles, "you will have a cold by the end of April!" Oh yes, my friends, Karma is real.
Then I grabbed his box of Kleenex and fled.
