Semper Fi, Ladies
I want to write a love letter. A love letter to some really fantastic ladies.
Today was the last day of work at my current job. On Monday I start with a new company in a totally different industry. I am very excited about it. And as an extra, added bonus, I’ll be working with Isabella again. Nothing good can come from that, I assure you.
Back to the love letter. While I am absolutely thrilled beyond belief to be leaving that industry, I will miss the ladies I worked with immensely. I have a bit of guilt leaving them all there – but, I guess that I’m not a marine and they’re not exactly “fallen” comrads that I’m leaving behind. Many of them are faithful readers of this site so I know they’ll see this. Besides, what is a blog if not an opportunity to be entirely self indulgent?
I thoroughly enjoyed working with each and every one of you. You are all brilliant and long suffering, witty and a superb audience. I can’t imagine that any group of women could have more fun while working under greater stress unless there is some group of comediennes diffusing nuclear bombs somewhere. I will honestly miss trading quips and giggles over the cubie walls with you. And rarely have I had a better audience for my antics than with you all. You have inspired me and, knowing that you’re all out there reading my stuff, you’ve made me a better story teller. Hang in there and remember, in the long, hard fight against “the man”, you’re all really good at what you do. Keep smiling, keep muttering under your breath, and when you really, really can’t take it anymore, I left you the “Bullshit” button.
XOXOXOXOX – Amylynn (your faithful clown)
