To quote one of my favorite Prince songs:
“Hey, look me over
Tell me do u like what u see?
Hey, I ain’t
got no money
But honey I’m rich on personality…”
Please bow down before me as I am indeed a star. I was the recipient of the “Unsung Hero” award from my office on Friday night at our Christmas party. You could have knocked me over with a feather (but not because of the wine – that came later), I was shocked! But it was a really nice kind of shock, you know? I’m usually the one in the background trying to shine the light on others (or at least I think I am) so it was quite the nice surprise. Props to JoJo for the really great job she did on the certificate thingy. I’m gonna frame it.
What wasn’t so fun was the aftermath of the copious wine drinkage I did. Oh. my. heavens. I am too old for that kind of tomfoolery! Duty said that I am naturally effusive (okay, my word, not his) and the alcohol exponentially increases it. Next thing you know you are knocking balls off Christmas trees and forgetting conversations you had on the way home which involve important plans for the following day. Yeah. Let it be said that I sure did have fun but I sure did pay for it the next day. It took 2 Advils and an entire pot of coffee for me to feel remotely human.
Anyway, when you feel compelled to be peevy with me, just remember that I. AM. A. STAR (on planet RBC). :)
