You Are a Snarky Blogger!
You’ve got a razor sharp wit that bloggers are secretly scared of.
And that’s why they read your posts as often as they can!
Snarky? Me? Can you imagine it? Gosh. I’m thrilled, you know. :) Although I truly doubt there is anyone hanging on my every word since my “every word” is usually whining or complaining. I’ve always maintained that I keep this blog for my own amusement. If people read it, that’s cool. If not, that’s cool, too. As Bri says “it’s all good, baby.” hee!
So, yeah. I did my patriotic duty to rid the world of the village idiot. Duty and I were at the polling place at 5:55am and there were already about 100 people in line before us. Once they got the line moving, though, it really flowed very smoothly and I was out and on my way home at 6:40am.
My last call of the day yesterday was a very nice man who was asking to close his IRA because he had a financial emergency. As I was taking his information down, he asked me “Are you married, Lisa?” I replied “Yes, I am” and he responded that his wife of 22 years had up and left him over the weekend. Just. like. that. No warning, no nothing. He sounded so sad and all I could do was offer him my shoulder and some sympathy. It’s times like that when I’m glad I could be there and offer whatever I can to someone who needs it. My attitude on the phone has changed a lot since I was last there. (Note: don’t hold me to this. I could become a witch on a moment’s notice!) There’s a feeling of … (for lack of a better word) protection now that I give to people. I am a caretaker by nature and when I’m not worn out or worn down to a nub, I can really make people feel good. That’s my goofy little mission now: make people feel good when they call and talk to me. I hope I do it well.
A shout out to goddaughter of love who is undergoing her last IN HOSPITAL chemo round (more out patient ones to come but this is the last one where she’s got to be hooked up 24/7 for three days). Good luck, schweeeeetie!
Okay, time to get ready to
