Hello. It’s Belinda.
There are two “elephants in the barn” if you know what I mean. So let’s just get it over with.
I did not show up for work on Tuesday and everyone went into a panic.
It wasn’t my fault but I still felt terrible. The whole thing “went down” because my roommate forgot to pack something important for our holiday weekend.
More on that later.
I never meant to worry anyone or embarrass my agent. It’s good to know that my friends watch out for me.
The second item on my “agenda” is a much bigger deal because it’s my own fault. It’s about Abigail.
I forgot her one-year anniversary.
How do you like that.
It seems like yesterday that I went behind everyone’s back and hired Abigail. Even though "technically" I was not allowed to hire anyone.
I had no choice in my opinion. The team and my roommate were acting “shifty” about my surprise birthday. So naturally I thought I was being fired.
Well even though it was a big misunderstanding, a lot of good came from it.
Abigail’s novel has been a big hit. When I read the very first chapter about her life with “Dad,“ I thought wow this rabbit can write.
And when Small Pet Select officially hired her, they promoted me to the easiest management job on earth. I don’t even have to do anything, to tell you the truth. When Abigail and I have conference calls, we mostly talk about food and house projects. That sort of thing.
I’m sure some of you are thinking “Oh don’t worry about it, Belinda. The company will understand and so will Abigail.”
That’s what I hoped but get this. There’s a big “mandatory” meeting this week.
My agent scheduled it during my breakfast time so I’d be alert. It even said on the memo: “No half-naps allowed during this meeting.”
She added a little “smiley” drawing after that sentence but I know it was directed at me. Nobody else on the team nods off during meetings.
Enough about that. Back to my Memorial Day weekend “elephant.”
So my roommate wanted me to have a relaxing weekend away. Told me I work too much and a “change of scenery” would be good for me.
She even sent the English and my boyfriend’s companion to a friend’s house. Still hoping to bond them. None of my business but come on.
Anyway, we stayed at a hotel that was pretty “swanky.”
There was a sun porch and everything. No interruptions, just birds.
I slept like a “log” all weekend.
Here’s what my roommate remembered to pack for me:
- Laptop (which I never even touched, to be honest)
- Sleeping rug
- Cooler full of organic romaine, cilantro, dandelion and collard greens
- Dandelion carrot and pear blueberry healthy snackers
- Zen Tranquility herbal blend
- Alfalfa hay
- 3rd cutting timothy hay
- Organic apple sticks
- Fancy Fruited Pine Cone Chews
Here’s what she forgot to pack:
- Cell phone charger
Did you ever chew your roommate’s charger cord? My advice is don’t.
Humans become “unhinged” when they cannot use their phones. At the hotel, my roommate dumped everything out of her suitcase onto the bed. Dug in it like it was carpet. She kept saying “no” over and over.
Then she left the room to check the car. She was gone for a long time.
You might wonder what that has to do with me missing work on Tuesday.
It’s because we got lost on the way home. Turns out my roommate uses her phone to find her way around. It tells her when to turn left and right and so on.
Well we ended up pretty far “afield” on Monday night. So we stayed at a B & B.
My roommate said it stood for “Belinda and Bestie.” I consider my boyfriend’s companion to be my best friend but I can have two.
