They don’t think I notice the snickers behind my back and … well … I know what they’re thinking, I can hear them as clear as day – You’ve got yourself into this mess – it’s up to you to work your way out. Well, phooey! I’d be there to help them out, and I wouldn’t whisper and laugh about it either.
Come to think of it … I really resent their attitude and I’m not sure I can trust what they’re tellin’ me. After all, they want the same thing I do. Success! ‘To go where no man (woman) has gone before.’ To achieve what no one has been able to achieve so far. Yes! Me! I can – and will, do this. And I’ll bet the Boss will notice. Ah hah! In – your – face – friends!
Whoooooa … wait a minute here … I think I’m startin’ to feel a little nauseous. I hope I don’t have sweat circles under my arms. That money back guaranteed deodorant better be workin’ cause this dilemma’s got me reeling left and right and there’s no way I want anyone to know how nervous I am – especially my so-called Christian friends.
Friends, hrumph! Who do they think I am – some kind of dummy that can’t see right through them? Do they really think I’m supposed to listen to their opinions about which direction I should go? Yeah, right! They just want to see me fall flat on my own rear-end while I’m trying to find that donkey’s … err … hind-end! We’ll see who laughs last.
Man! You really find out who’s your best friend when you’re playing ‘Pin the Tail on the Donkey.’
I can’t wait ‘till it’s Suzanne’s turn, and boy is she gonna get hers!
Okay, lets see … my head has stopped spinning – that's good. Now, if I can find the other pin holes, I think I can just about … figure out … where this dorkey donkey's tail ...
‘Ummmph! Hey! Wait a minute! That’s not where I was aiming! Someone must have bumped me! Suuuzzz? Okay, that’s it! No more Miss Nice Guy for you. And guess what Miss Priss? It’s your turn to pin the tail … and MY turn to spin. Here, dear friend, (*snicker, snicker*) let me help you with that blindfold … hehe.’ (*snicker, snicker*)
