Rolling in the Dough

I woke up today, made my coffee and hopped in the shower. Getting ready for another day at the office. Why do all my days seem the same? I wish I could have a little excitement in my life.

On the way to the office I stop and get my coffee, two sugars and extra cream, also the same as every other day. I pull into the office parking lot. I am almost late, as always, and have to park a mile from the door because all the suck ups arrived early enough to get the good spaces. Why do I do this to myself I wonder as my nylons get soaked from sloshing through the puddles.

I walk in to the office and my boss immediately asks to see me. This is not like any other day. I am a fly under the radar kind of person. I start thinking about my savings account and how many months I can live of the two grand in there. Not long thats for sure.

When I walk into his office he closes the door and smiles. He tells me that until now he had not noticed the quality of my work. I almost laugh.

Apparently even though I am frequently late and do not socialize with anyone my work itself has been great. He likes my attitude. I am being made supervisor of my branch. double my salary he says. Now I am thinking about the two grand in my savings and what I can blow it on. The day flies by, full of dirty looks from the suck ups. The clock hits five and I am out the door.

I go to the salon in town and ask for a full treatment. I can afford these luxuries now. As I am receiving my facial I am thinking about the car I am going to buy. Nothing too flashy of course. Well maybe a little flashy. Just flashy enough to rub in the faces of the goody two shoes who do not do my quality of work.

Life is fun now, life is different. Today was not like any other day and tomorrow will be different as well.
