So I wake up this morning to a really nice surprise. I better rephrase the last thing I just stated. I was awaken by the loud intrusive ringer of my phone. I rollover and I can feel the steam starting sizzle off the top of my dome. I am thinking, "Who in the hell is calling me this morning, because they know that I am off work and if it's not important I'm going to tell the &^%$ off!"
I let out a groggy, "Hello."
On the other end I hear, "Did you get anything in the mail yesterday?" (It's Buddy Lee)
I reply, "I didn't check the mailbox, but I got a package from my mom for my birthday."
He tells me to go and check the mail because he sent something overnight. As pissed as I am I go downstairs and get the mail. I begin sifting through the mail until I come across what appears t be a birthday card from him. The steam begins to rise again. I'm thinking to myself, "I hope he didn't just wake me for a birthday card.
I say to him, "Did you just wake me for a birthday card that I would have eventually got today?"
He replies, "Yep!"
As I am about to let him have he says, "Just open it, fool."
Long story short. There was an itinerary for Seattle to Las Vegas.
Meaning: I am on my way to Vegas next week.
I guess it's a good thing that I had leave starting on Monday and all I need to do now is extend my leave until the end of the week.
