tgif: strong magic

July 12, 2012

it’s a feat of magic really.  i have nearly survived an entire week of work at the new job.  i have survived the toe-numbing cold office temperatures (it registered 66 degrees today) and the sweltering heat of the walk across the upper school lot to my parking badge-bearing wheels.  i have survived waking up before the trash trucks to start my morning commute by 8, which inevitably sits me in traffic at exit 71 on route 66 for about 25 minutes.  i have packed lunch every day and i remember exactly 3 names (suzy-my boss, doug-the security guard, and maha.  note, i only remember maha because it rhymes with aha! my favorite of all exclamations).  i have navigated highways and unfamiliar territory and new office databases and volleyball camps for 12-year-olds and gossip about claire, a graduated senior who stole another senior’s boyfriend.  magic, people, magic.

to celebrate, i’ve changed out of my schoolmarm garb.  i’m gussied up and pounding at the keyboard in my lbd.  i’m heading off to a soiree tonight.  quit it, it’s actually called a soiree.  and the dress code reads: strong cocktail.

because that’s how you survive your first week at a new job- magic and strong cocktail.

kinda like this. but less naked. and less expensive.

    Congratulations on completing the first week. Always tough starting a new job with new people. Just make sure you determine who the Packers fans are. —Notorious
