Hello and welcome back to the rushed Dogpound. Yep, the Master called and said I was short an article and my loyal fans would be faced with a “classic “rerun if I did not hop to it. It mattered little that I protested the pressure since I was sure I was a week ahead on my dead-lines, but you know how it is with the boss. There are only two rules when it comes to the boss: one: the boss is always right, and number two is: see rule number one. LOL Anyway, there is a trend starting around my plant, and I am not sure how it started but I am hearing a phrase being used more and more. Now I am used to catch phrases; for example, in my day there was “That’s Cool” or “So Bad” when this meant being a good thing. I know…go figure. But even before my days there were other strange phrases: “The Cat’s Meow” or the “The Bees Knees”…who knew bees had knees? So, what is starting to come out in conversations and is getting a bit under my skin? It is the word “perfect.” A simple word that has its place but of late more and more folks are using it all the time. I send someone some information…”It is perfect.” If I tell my boss I can make the two o’clock meeting...then that is “perfect.” If we agree on a number..then it is “perfect.” It is starting to drive me a bit crazy…not sure why, but I am sure it makes perfect sense in a perfect way. LOL
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
“No one is perfect... that’s why pencils have erasers.”
WHO IS AFRAID OF THEIR SHADOW?
I was eating lunch on the 20th of February with my 10-year-old granddaughter and I asked her, “What day is tomorrow?” She said “It’s President’s Day!” She is a smart kid. I asked “What does President’s Day mean?” I was waiting for something about Washington or Lincoln ... etc. She replied, “President’s Day is when President Obama steps out of the White House, and if he sees his shadow we have one more year of unemployment.” You know, it hurts when hot coffee spurts out your nose.
A man runs to the doctor and says, “Doctor, you’ve got to help me. My wife thinks she’s a chicken!” The doctor asks, “How long has she had this condition?” “Two years,” says the man. “Then why did it take you so long to come and see me?” asked the shrink. The man shrugs his shoulders and replies, “We needed the eggs.”
That is done in record time. Got to lie down..my head is spinning. As always be good, play safe and remember being perfect is not all about being right.
