So there I was, sitting at my desk, getting all kinds of things done.  I was amazing.  I was like … well, like a machine that gets a lot of things done.  And I was listning to my headphones, and the BEST SONG EVER came one, you know, the one from Legally Blonde?  No, before she gets dumped.  Yeah, that one.

Sooo my phone rings, and I’m totally like answering it and doing a sudoku and handling this purchase order all at the same time.  But it’s my boyfriend, and he needs me to take him to the courthouse.  Apparently he got this jury duty thing and he has to be there.  But it’s completely no big deal because he’ll get sent home because they always tell more people to come than show up.  They really should put “RSVP” on those letters.  That would totally help them plan things better.

So I tell Ginger that I’m going out for a mani/pedi and I’ll be back like really soon.  But when I get my boyfriend there, he’s all reminding me that there’s this warrant out for him because he got all these traffic tickets, which is completely not his fault.  They don’t realize that he’s got this uber-rare disorder that makes him not see street signs.  I’m not kidding.  He told me the name of it and everything.  Anyway, he said he might need me to pick him up late, in case he gets assigned to one of the court-things.

Well I didn’t want to lie to Ginger, so I stopped by the salon on the way home and got that mani/pedi I was talking about.  When I finally got back to the office, I realized I’d missed lunch and I was definately going to have to put “Perfect Day” on repeat once I got back from lunch.  On the way back into the office, I ran into Jane, who is like the biggest buzzkill.  And she asked where I’d been all morning, so I told her about my boyfriend getting called for jury duty and everything and how he might have to stay late, and how we were both hoping they didn’t look too closely into his parking ticket thing.

“So let me get this straight.  Your boyfriend’s got a warrant out for his arrest because of unpaid parking tickets?”

“Uh, huh,” I nodded.

“And he’s down at the courthouse right now?”

“Uh huh.”

“And he told you that he might be late?”

I just nodded this time, ’cause I didn’t want to sound like an idiot.  Jane just looked at me that way she always does and walked away.  That’s just the way she is.  I bet she’s got a good heart, even if she’s kind of dumb sometimes.
