Red eye. Red eyes. No sleep. Bleary. A full day with no breaks. Not one. Pooped.Â I’m facing a hard week, don’t want to be there, want to be home.Â Â Whining about it to myself.Â I’m waiting for the pilot to turn off the seat belt sign (timing is everything) and I see that I had a voice mail overnight.Â THAT is weird… 2am?Â Â I check it….
It starts with a deep growling.. “DUH.. DUH DUH DUH.. DUH DUH”Â I recognize the tune.. not the voice….then
Sung to the tune of “Eye of the Tiger”
Once in the gate
Neck a mess
Back in trou-ble
She’s gone the distance
Now she’s back on her feet
Just a girl and her love for endive.
She’s a chick who can jet set
With little/no sleep
Facing mean cor-a-porate giants
(indiscernible phrase here)
And I’m watching her go.. there she goes!…
Oh.Â Hi, Christina.Â Not sure where that came from…
Wanted to leave you a message …get some coffee, splash your face.. ask that guy next to you (I’m hoping he is cute since you slept with him last night) to carry your bags…..
Have a great day!
The indiscernible part is forever unknown cuz that little ditty came out of his head impromptu when he heard the beep…..Â It is a great way to leave a message.Â In these days of e-mail, texting and facebook.. actually hearing a voice is nice!Â 🙂
Beware:Â you don’t want me to call you the next few weeks as I try out this new way of leaving a message.Â If you see my name in your voice mail.. just delete it and move on.
