Lyrical Wednesday

Posted on

I picked up my second paycheck from the temp job yesterday, and all I could think of when I looked at it was that I worked awfully hard for not a lot of money. There are a lot of people working awfully hard for not a lot of money.

The weather has been just about perfect around here lately and I’d much rather be outside than in, working for not a lot of money. Several times, I’ve been mightily tempted to call in well. I haven’t, but that’s not to say I couldn’t some fine day, and apparently I’m not the only one who’s ever wanted to make that kind of call.

Telephone Booth Number 905 1/2

by Pedro Pietri

Woke up this morning feeling excellent.
Picked up the telephone, dialed a number of my equal-opportunity employer to inform him I will not be going in to work today.
Are you feeling sick the boss asked me.
No sir, I replied. I am feeling too good to report to work today.

If I feel sick tomorrow I will come in early.
