Friday Update: The Friday Strikes Back

I spoke too soon. I told you I was going to jinx myself and I did. Three hours to go was a tad bit off. It was more like six hours to go.

"I need you to do me a big favor"

These are possibly the worst words to ever hear your boss say. Your boss orders you. When they are asking you for a favor, it means it is something that is beyond even what they can order you to do. Today's favor was to drive some equipment up to our other lab. Normally a one hour drive, only she asked me to do it at 4pm on a Friday in Miami. For those not here, you get further sleeping than you do driving at 4pm on a Friday in Miami. And I had only three cigarettes too. It was not going to be a happy drive and it was not one. I think I averaged 5MPH the entire time; 7 when traffic was moving.

None of that matters now though because I am home, I am getting intoxicated and it is now Friday!!!

The drive sounds like a nightmare. And with only 3 cigarettes! The horror of it. I'd be having a drink, too. Maybe two.

Bad habit leftover from 10 years working in kitchens. I have moved on to a much better job, but seem to still have the bad habit.

I mostly quit when I met my ex......And totally quit after I had to clean my fathers apartment when he passed away from lung cancer (he smoke 4 packs a day for 40 years). He lived alone in Sicily..... There was an inch of ash on his floor when we went over to take care of his business....

It turned me off smokes forever....that was 9 years ago......
