He left me........ - Days by the Bay

He left me........
It was around lunch time yesterday at work when I got the news. I had been running around, trying to cater to everyone's 'This Is Hot' or 'Please Expedite' requests for materials to be released. I was tired, hungry and in no mood for what I was about to hear. I passed my office and went directly to the cafe at work to order some food. By the way, the sandwich I had gave me awful heartburn - not even my daily prilosec would cure. Anyway, as I usually do, I get my food to go so that I can eat in my office. This is always a big mistake because I always get interrupted and no-one seems to care that my feeding time is important to me. Anyway, knowing I'll be bombarded, I went to my desk to eat. There was a piece of paper on my chair that looked like a letter typed out. Okay, so I thought maybe someone was turning in a resignation. Great! Maybe that little son of a bitch..... awww, I shouldn't say that. I'm just emotional and don't really mean it.

I placed my food down and picked up the letter. The first thing my eyes went to was the picture of him waving goodbye at the door. My mind was racing, I started to panic and looked around my office in dis-belief. We have been together for so long now, and just like that he decides to leave me? And leave a picture to boot?!!? WTF! After calming down enough to sit in my chair, I continued to the verbiage portion of the letter.

"Dear Marc,

I've decided that there is not enough room for my presence here any longer. My wandering spirit needs to move on and explore what else is out there for me. I'm sure at some point we'll be together again, but I can't and won't say if or when that will be. Please know that I have truly enjoyed all of the times we have shared together and one day hope we can share them again. Until that day, I say goodbye."

Then the signature was one like I've never seen before. I looked again at the photo and simply could not believe it. The only thing I could do was burst out in laughter.

Sitting here today at home, I wonder...... Just where is that adorable little Gnome of mine that always greeted me at my desk. Someone at work is looking for retaliation, and oh I can't wait to play this game with them.....

Current Mood: sad sad

It wasn't me, but only because I don't work there. That is exactly the kind of thing I'd be involved in...

Ahhhh, I see how you are.... I like people that know how to have fun and are creative. You would be a bad influence on my co-workers!! :) I'd like messing with you! In more than one way.....

Who me? I'm just an innocent Lug. Don't listen to the people who know me - they lie when they say I'm a bad influence.

Innocent? Hmmmmmmmmm. I think that halo is just one of those long distance frisbee's that someone got a lucky throw on. I've heard some good one's about you.......

Who from, who from? Was it good?

Oh it was good. Boner material, believe me! I would love to disclose my source, but I need the JO material...............

You are SO lucky you're on the west coast...
baybearcub From: baybearcub Date: January 20th, 2006 08:52 pm (UTC) (Link)
I know - the people here are so much friendlier than on the east coast. The stories I've heard, not only about you, but of many east coaters are just crazy! What's up with that?!!?
From: bigredlug Date: January 20th, 2006 10:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
I think you missed my point...you'd be in for it if you were here, mister. And, I don't know what you mean about west coasters...the folks here are MUCH friendlier. The crazies are all out your way.

Oh I got your point, just gettin' one in on ya - being a little smart-ass.......

My west coast friends are bigger than your east coast friends......

*mutters " damn size queens" Sure you did...and here, let me practice my look of surprise at you being a little smart-ass. :-O
baybearcub From: baybearcub Date: January 20th, 2006 11:13 pm (UTC) (Link)
A look of surprise? How cute! Sure you aren't just constipated?

While that can be a problem for people of my age, I take daily fiber and eat lots of prunes to avoid it.
baybearcub From: baybearcub Date: January 20th, 2006 11:20 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hmmmmmm, perhaps I should try that.......
From: bigredlug Date: January 20th, 2006 11:29 pm (UTC) (Link)
Just kidding about the prunes...but I really do take fiber supplements daily.
baybearcub From: baybearcub Date: January 20th, 2006 11:35 pm (UTC) (Link)
I started that once, but I liked just eating lots of cheese daily much better. Works great!

What's really odd is the unexpected arrival of a gnome and two of his friends at my doorstep. I guess they heard that I was a safe house for them on their flight to freedom... very underground railraod...

Imagine that.... Right there on your doorstep. I couldn't have picked a better place for him to go. He knows a sexy bear when he see's one! If it's him, tell him hello for me!
