Anyway, the young lady woke up with a fever. Her brother looked at her suspiciously...
"Yes, she is sick" I assured him.
So, off he went to school and I contemplated about work. What a wonderful excuse to take the day off work to catch up on work. That sounded bad...from both a motherly perspective and a professional one too. But my instinct tells me I should try to stay at home. So, I made a few phone calls, (quite a few!...almost took me 45 minutes to settle and delegate work) and I informed the office about my Emergency Leave.
Ok, settled the young lady with her breakfast and plenty of fluids.
Then I sat at my computer and did as much work as I could.
Come midday I get a call from the The Boss.
"I'm on leave today Sir....... ok.......just today. I'll be back at work tomorrow"
There was an uncomfortable silence on his side. I knew he wanted me to come in.
"Ok, I'll make myself available. What time? 3.30pm. Ok, I'll see you then". Urgh. Succumbed to his demands (again).
Had to leave the house with Young Lady alone for a few hours until Big Brother came home. She said she would be fine.
Got to the meeting. Sat down. A red faced Caucasian was visiting, and somebody obviously forgot to put on sunscreen during a sunny outing....
I looked at him. I know this guy....where have I seen him before?
I thought very hard.....and BINGO! I know! Hahahaha....I giggled to myself. He was the spitting image of Leslie Nielsen. Great. Now I had to take the image of Naked Gun 2½ out of my head and at least try to concentrate. Hehehehe....not doing a good job at it though.
Oh well, at least I got a bit of pleasure at laughing to myself through the meeting, on my day
