Thursday night, I couldn’t sleep. Thank God I went to bed early and caught a couple of hours of shuteye, because about 1 a.m., I was a.w.a.k.e. Decided to do a little work, since I was up, anyhow.
Later Friday morning, I received this e-mail:
I am a little concerned. You see, I have a manager that is staying up all hours of the night probably because of Starbucks and blogging. Approving invoices at 2:15am and the like. What would you tell this manager?

If I were you, and I had such a manager, I would be asking the following questions of said manager:
(1) Why did you take the wrong daytime vitamins at 8:30 p.m. last night before you went to bed?
(2) What's up with ABC Oil Company calling you at 4 p.m. yesterday and demanding a 25% cut by first thing Friday morning if we wanted to stay on the vendor list?
(3) Why didn't you get to relax and read blogs instead of worrying and working all night?
Nuff said. If you forward anyone this e-mail you will be in deepa poopa...
Thanks for caring!

Okay you need more time to focus on the small stuff than I thought. I am glad you don't drink or you might have a bad hangover this morning.
Whaaaattt? Well, heck. At least he cares – and that’s why we call him Rockstar!
By the way, it's lunch...I am in need of speed. Caffiene. Ginko Biloba. Something.
Or, maybe just a little sleep.
