A perfect way to start my morning.
I think you have successfully placed a visual on my mind set for this morning.
This thread is first my stop in the morning, well, truthfully, my second stop. I like to start the day with a prayer and a smile. Normally my critters
supply me with the smile, their frequent reinforcement of my Hu-mon training, is usually good for a early morning chuckle. I have two Ridgies, and
they are pretty old. The male is very old (19 people years old), my female, only 11, and my cat, that thinks he is the alpha Ridgie, is three months
older than the male Ridgeback. My critters can’t stand for one of their bowls to be empty. They will share, and they will drink and eat from the
same bowl, all three, but they have a conniption fit, if one food bowl or one water bowl is empty. I think they have a prepper’s mind set. Always be
prepared and make sure the bowls are always filled, just in case. You have to be careful with your Hu-mons, they can be very fickle sometimes, nyou
have to quickly reinforce their training, or they will develop bad habits that can take months to correct. (From the 6th chapter, page 42, in “How
to Raise a Near Perfect Hu-mon”. the pet’s guidebook for instructions on how to properly raise and train your own personal hu-mon.
This morning my hearty chuckle came from the perfect visual of the challenges before me this day.
Starting with the physic’s poster. Everyday I have to deal with a group of people in a career field that spends every second of their day coming up
with ways to make the simplest of task as complex and complicated as possible. If given a chance, I think they could come up an encyclopedia version
of “How to Sharpen Pencils”, by David Rees.
Moving directly to dealing with administrators that see themselves as intelligent, upper class bees but are truly, no more than a group of over
zealous, rotund, wasps.
The only saving grace in this mix is the handful of strays, lost fellows and neglected comrades that have stumbled into my life, usually just at the
right time, to provide me with a renewal of energy and purpose for getting the job done.
Thanks for the reminder, the smile and the proper mood adjustment to start my day on the right foot.
