A Cup of Tea

Last week I got a job.  It's great for me because it is something I can do from home.  Just a small bookkeeping job.
I started working away on it at the kitchen table one evening last week.  I was toiling away, happy to have this little job to do.  As I was eagerly entering figures into the  computer, my husband, from the other side of the kitchen in his Cozy Chair asked me if I would make him some tea.




Ah ha!  I smiled to myself.  For the first time in a very looong time I could answer thus:

"I'm working, you make it."  Here is the rest of the conversation.

I'm working too!

No you're not,  you're scrolling around on Ebay.

This is work.  I'm adding to our childrens' inheritance.

I got up and made the tea.  Who could argue with twisted logic like that?

Hehe ... it sure sounds like he has as great a sense of humor as you do. I love an at-home job. I wish I could find one here. I'd be so happy to be able to work in my slippers while sipping tea.

You're a corporate mogul!

Congratulations on your job! I hope you enjoy it and it keeps you out of trouble.

And I hope that husband bought something you like!

Yeah for you! I hope you enjoy your new job.

Ummm....I'm afraid I always convince my husband that I'm working too hard on school stuff and I need a latte. (And he doesn't even drink them.) I am so spoiled!
