OK, so I agreed to work tomorrow since my co-worker had already made a doctor appointment. Unfortunately, I had put off a bunch of things that I intended to do tomorrow, like grade papers, shop for a gift for my Czech orphan, knit an entire hat and scarf as a gift, wrap and send my Christmas presents home, and grade more papers. So now I'm a little stressed that I had planned all these things for tomorrow and I will be sitting at work instead. (If you hadn't figured it out by now, I stress out easily.) Thus I had the following hilarious exchange with my husband online tonight:

Sarah: usch, do you ever feel job stress?
Sarah: dumb question, right?
Husband: umm...a little I guess
Husband: why?
Sarah: but like when you guys have a lot to do, does your stomach feel like you're gonna throw up?
Sarah: cuz that's how I feel this week
Husband: not really
Husband: but if people make me real mad at work I get to shoot them

Man, I love that guy.

How funny! Several weeks ago I wrote an entry about a satire army commercial saying just that: "ever have one of those days at work where you just want to kill someone - join the army and you can." I'm hoping to actually get to film a 30 second spot in March with my new documenatary maker friend.

Hehe - now I'm envious! You'd think that with the armies of several nations as customers, we'd be able to call in the occasional favour, but noooo...

You know sometimes it sure would be nice to take care of a problem the your hubbie can, maybe though more like a video game. Like virtual reality video game with people in it who you've got a beef with and "boom" they're gone!

Isn't it great having an alternative to just "taking it?" Just think of the utopia your husband has.

Husband: You're making me mad.
Scum bag: What are you going to do about it?
Husband: Bang, bang.

End of story. If only his bliss could be shared with the rest of us. The world would be a better place.
