A little right-wing lie

When my boss asked me why I wasn't coming in to the office today, I told him I haven't been feeling so well since Dick Cheney shot me in the face.

He was not amused.

I stuck with my story, though, because it was easier than explaining that I caught pneumonia while completing a gay bar crawl in a blizzard.

(Don't worry. It's not really pneumonia. At least I don't think so.)

Only in Texas could a 78-year old man be mistaken for a 6" wingless bird. Help me.

And I still hope you feel better. Or is this just an elaborate excuse to rest before hitting Christopher Street again?

He shot you TOO? That's what I told my boss on Friday. She said it sounded more like I had a bad cold. I told her it was the effect of the shotgun pellets that peppered my sinuses. She didn't believe me. I dotted some mascara on the right side of my face before going to work. She still didn't believe me. What's a person gotta do to get a day off, for frick's sake!

Ha! Very funny. I'm glad I don't work with you because I would have laughed so hard at this comment I would have surely been fired.
