Well, I am finally relieved for the first time in a long time. I was told today I am getting the full bonus at work that I was hoping for. It is going to be a relief not to have to live paycheck-to-paycheck, at least for a while … !

OK, enough gloating. I just wanted to express my gratitude and relief to someone other than Jeff and my parents, because I’m happy! It is the first time I’ve gotten a bonus EVER, because the first year I became eligible at Disney they didn’t give one, and I didn’t stay in my next jobs long enough to get one!

Gee, I’m so happy, I might even go ride Big Thunder.

Congratulations! (You bastard.)

You now, I’ve always wondered what it’s like to, at one point during the work year, receive a chunk of money for no apparent reason. Just a nice lump of cash appearing out of nowhere into my checking account. Will you write a poem describing what that feels like?

Today, on this
the Day of Days,
my eyes widened,
my heart skipped,
my soul sang
and then,
when the relief
that came from Metamucil
I received a bonus check.
That was nice, too.

Sorry I didn’t comment on the poem! Thank you for the submission. I can say with certainty that it is, without fail, present.
