Just Another Day in the Life of That Janie Girl

It’s 10:36 p.m. Are you awake? I am. But I’m trying to wind down and go to sleep. Have a flight to catch to the big Houston in the morning, have to pack, all that stuff. Yes, off I go to Yet.Another.Meeting.

But this one has a twist. Meetings start at lunch tomorrow and will last until sometime Thursday after lunch. And then…

My fellow coworkers and I are going to the King Ranch. THE King Ranch. Yeah, That One. We’re going to shoot guns, go on a hog hunt, go quail hunting, and bay fishing. All paid for by my employer.

And yeah.

Once again, I’m the ONLY female going. In all my years selling in the Oilpatch, I've watched my male counterparts take customers to the King Ranch. Never have I been asked to go. I am so excited, just to see it. Believe me, it will be Have Camera Will Travel. Some of the World Trophy Bucks live forever on this ranch. And I'll get to see them!

ThatManILove isn't able to go, it's an employee only trip. He's more than a little jealous, but told me he would be mad if I declined the trip. He's such a sweetheart. That's why he's ThatManILove!

Have I told y’all I LOVE MY JOB?

Please hire me. I hate my job. I know nothing about oil or hunting, but I can carry your briefcase. And get you coffee.

I cannot WAIT to see the pictures from this trip! I imagine you holding the head of a slain creature in one hand, a rifle in the other, surrounded by envious looking middle-aged dudes. Awesome!!!

Hey--- I just gave you an award! Because you can hang with the big boys and show them how it's done. Come over to my place to pick it up. :)

GPS just in case you get lost. If it were me, I'd intentionally get lost and never be found again. Open range and nature abundant, man oh man, what a daydream.

Laura said...

I hope your meetings go well and you enjoy the boys club. Let us know what the secret hand shake is for when we go to OK? Safe flight back.
