I work in a 4 story building (counting the basement). I’m at the very top in the 3rd floor. It’s nice and quiet up here. But I guess it can be too quiet. There are 3 guys and about 15 women, split between 4 departments. I learned this morning that when my coworkers need a break, and a little excitement, they come to my office. They like to read the paper – that is their break. Then they like to ask me, “So how are things at your house?” Guaranteed, I will answer their question. And they know this. Therefore, I liven up their day.
What is sad is that it has taken me 3 years to figure this out. No one ever said I was on top of things.
This morning a lady from the Compliance Department asked me that wonderful question. I went into how we still haven’t caught one of the wild kittens that is floating around outside. A week and a half ago my brother-in-law called saying that he was going to just give us their old truck. I told my hubby that I knew there had to be a hitch. Yep, there was. With the truck came a stray cat and her 3 kittens. All but 1 now live in my house and keep me up at night.
When I finished my story she said, “You need to quit working here and just have your own TV reality show!”
Huh! She kind of caught me off guard with that one. I know we would never even entertain something like that. I relish my privacy which sounds weird since I have a blog. And my fraggles would hate it if weird people were suddenly in their space. Matthew would literally shut down.
And another, they wouldn’t like us. For one, we are nowhere near any major cities. Have you noticed that most reality TV shows are very near a major city? If they need film they have to get it ASAP. For another, there is no overbearing wife. We’re not like Jon & Kate. I let my husband have options and choices. Also, none of us were ever famous, like the Hogans. And we are nowhere near being a big family like the Duggars on “18 Kids and Counting.”
So no reality TV for us. They will just have to get our stories at the water cooler every day. Well, that is unless they want to nominate us for Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Now that is one TV show I wouldn’t laugh at! 1000 square feet with 4 kids. I’ll take what I can get .
