A post about my husband, drunk sex and a missing cat

So I got this joke in the mail. It's pretty hilarious. I could have just e-mailed it out to eleventy-billion of y'all, but then I was all that's why I have blog space. And it's Saturday, and everyone knows that nobody is reading blogs on Saturday, so I can pretty much post whatever the fuck I want to. So I am.


It could be that this joke is *really* that funny, or that I just have a weird sense of humor (I have 2 baby cats, and I can't even imagine acting like this), OR It might just be me being too lazy to write a WHOLE post about how my husband came home super drunk the other night and decided that RIGHT NOW would be the perfect time to have sex, while I completely and unironically was watching the movie Stick It! (which even though sounds like it could be, is NOT porn) and then he passed out, and then this morning he was dragging ass because OMG he was up drinking instead of home sleeping like normal people do. And then when I was poking at him because HEY GET UP, YOU GOTTA GO TO WORK, he made some snide remark about this one time where I went out with my friend and HER friends and one of them thought it would be a good idea to buy us a bajillion car bombs,and shots of tequila AND a Toyko Tea on a fucking Wednesday night, and I apparently thought it would be a good idea to drink them. I got so drunk that I don't even remember getting home (I didn't drive) after midnight, I got up at 5-something in the morning to go to work still not completely sober, in fact, water made it worse, until I wised up and got some Gatorade in me. And when he called me and I told him about the previous night and how all I could do is pray I can finish out this day so that I can go home and pass out, he laughed at me...but I SHOULD HAVE SOME FUCKING SYMPATHY because he's SOOO tired.


So I'm going to make a long story even longer by saying, please to enjoy this joke instead of the above post that's not a post.





Shannon* (the secretary) has lost her cat and has asked David (the graphic designer) to help with a lost poster. This is their email correspondence...

Hi


I opened the screen door yesterday and my cat got out and has been missing since then so I was wondering if you are not too busy you could make a poster for me. It has to be A4 and I will photocopy it and put it around my suburb this afternoon.



This is the only photo of her I have she answers to the name Missy and is black and white and about 8 months old. missing on Harper street and my phone number.


Thanks Shan.

Dear Shannon,


That is shocking news.


Although I have two clients expecting completed work this afternoon, I will, of course, drop everything and do whatever it takes to facilitate the speedy return of Missy.


Regards, David.

Dear Shannon,


It's a design thing. The cat is lost in the negative space.

Dear Shannon,


Having worked with designers for a few years now, I would have assumed you understood, despite our vague suggestions otherwise, we do not welcome constructive criticism. I don't come downstairs and tell you how to send text messages, log onto Facebook and look out of the window. I have amended and attached the poster as per your instructions.


Regards, David.

yeah can you do the poster or not? I just want a photo and the word lost and the telephone number and when and where she was lost and her name. Not like a movie poster or anything stupid. I have to leave early today. If it was your cat I would help you. Thanks.

Dear Shannon,


I don't have a cat. I once agreed to look after a friend's cat for a week but after he dropped it off at my apartment and explained the concept of kitty litter. I have attached the amended version of your poster as per your detailed instructions.


Regards, David.

I know, but that one is cute. As Missy has quite possibly met any one of several violent ends, it is possible you might get a better cat out of this. If anybody calls and says "I haven't seen your orange cat but I did find a black and white one with its hind legs run over by a car, do you want it?" you can politely decline and save yourself a costly veterinarian bill.


Regards, David.

Well, I'm reading blogs on saturday, er sunday. Because everyone else is still asleep. Anyway, the link below is to the website of the guy who was making those posters of the cat. You will laugh so hard you'll pee your pants.

If that's not a ringing endorsement, I don't know what is!

Cats are evil, hence the evil red hat.

I do some graphic design on the side. I think he was doing his best. Sometimes clients can be so picky. : ) (that man is my hero)
