Whether a person, a pet, an object, or a place, write about something or someone you connected with from the very first second.
This is a really difficult question for an introvert. I don’t feel like I connect with people but it happens every few years. While I was at my last job, which I refer to as Suckfest, there was a nurse that I got along with really well. Let’s call her Honey Badger. She was so much fun to be at the Suckfest with. We work at different places now. We joked that we and another co-worker, MiMi, should start a carpeting business instead of staying at the Suckfest. It was someone’s idea to wear short shorts. I’m wasn’t so sure about the short shorts idea but it had to beat working at the Suckfest.
I’ve been ripping up the carpet in my house this week. It’s not as much fun without Honey Badger and Mimi. I wish that I had thought of having a “Help Holley tear up the Carpet Party.” We could have short shorts, margaritas, some cool high tops and music. We could have this carpet out of here in no time. Or in an excessive amount of time, you know whatever works.
I’ll even make Honey Badger some coffee. Honey Badger loves coffee, even more than I do. I told Honey Badger a secret once and she kept it. Thanks Honey Badger!!
