Tips from a four-year-old

ME: All the clothes in your hamper are dirty.

DAUGHTER: Well, I smelled some of them and they are clean.

ME: Who told you to do that?

Rumor has it...

...My replacement has been fairly vocal that she will not be returning to that job next year. Hah! Can't hack it? Who cares. So Leon and I are plotting how I can get my old job back. First, I can finally change my name. So that might get me an interview. But what if they recognize me at the interview? Second, keep growing my hair long, maybe add some blonde highlights, and lose about 50 pounds (this is where my secondary plan of winning the next season of The Biggest Loser comes in). Next, I should find some kind of vocal coach and learn some exotic accent that will really throw them. I have such a long time to plan this....I'm so psyched.
