I’m back in the grind with all those little candy assed kiddos at ASU. One week in and I’ve already had to drop one class that was supposed to be my “easy” class in Leadership. I mean I have mad guidance skill, I know how to use the carrot and stick approach, I am the Grand Poobah of Leadership. First quiz had questions like “A theory that identifies the essential behavior for a type of leader is best classified as prescriptive and universal, true or false?” Say what Willis? Isn’t a universal prescriptive like legal marijuana or something? Yeah, we’re just moving on to History of Popsicles instead.
Itty Bitty Consulting is limping along but in order to get clients I have to get out to those meet and greets to drum up new business. I’ve been a bit of slacker, whipping on mascara and calling it good. Now it involves eye shadow and lip gloss and hairspray. That translates into starting the day with Full Frontal Makeup. I’ve also been struggling with work shoes, for some reason they all seem too big. I’ve certainly not lost an ounce of weight in the last three months. Maybe the Big Tuna is a secret cross dresser, that would be a news flash after 30 years.
My new satellite office is housed in the front seat of my F150 truck. Join me in the Sisterhood of the Traveling Office won’t you? I feel like a freaking donkey lugging all my crap out. Dora Explorer backpack with textbooks, laptop, briefcase, flat shoes for driving, high heels for meeting, snacks, water, lunch bag etc., etc. etc. I’m compelled to make it all in one trip. I’m not sure why, I am woman hear me roar? I start my journey at the cheapest place for gasoline the little 4 pump Circle K at the end of the road. But WHY!!!! Pray tell, do you assholes pull up to the pump, text your all your buddies your plans for 10 minutes and THEN go inside to pay for gas. Maybe scrounging change from the floor dulls you to the extreme line of honking cars. F*ckers. Since we’re back to crazy schedules here’s an easy one for Team Tuna.

Not having a steady job has resulted in wolfing down granola bars and yogurt between these faux work gatherings. I have been known to be slurp down a Dannon with a plastic fork for Pete’s sake. I tell myself it’s to keep my girlish figure but frankly I’m too cheap to treat lunch for your business. But I will be happy to meet you at Starbucks and continue my little affair with the barista, Travis. I’m back to overdosing on my toast colored lover. And maybe I’m just a bit too jumpy with that extra jolt. Multitasking in my new office has a few drawbacks, including spilling my java lover all over my lap. As I reached into the glove box praying for a few napkins to blot my skirt all I could find was a maxipad. Let’s just say they really are absorbent and leave it at that shall we? Forget the Traveling Office I would have given my first born for a set of Traveling Underpants.
