Two weeks ago, I tortured myself, as I do every year. I spent a whole day at a relentlessly tedious seminar to renew my certification for a job I hope I never have to do again. For a day I pretended to listen to speakers who warned of various civic dangers, like failing to pick up dog poop (apparently, unpleasant odors!) and restaurants serving ill-gotten oysters (did you know oysters could be procured by shooting them with a 22?). Anyway, it promised to be a wasted day, but, in the words of my practical dad, “you should always have something to fall back on, in case this foolishness does not work out.” So I went.

Now you know what these things are like: all-you-can-eat Sam’s Club banana nut muffins, the desperate run on giant percolators of god-awful coffee, the lunch buffet (oh joy…taquitos and a side of raw broccoli with ranch dressing), the butt numbness, the afternoon head-bobbing, the dreadful networking, and of course, hours of mindless doodling disguised as note-taking.
Fortunately, the hours of mindless doodling paid off.
The culmination of the week came Saturday night at a party when the realization that I goofed when I set up the Facebook page struck terror in me. What was I thinking? I set up my BUSINESS as a PERSON! EVERYONE knows a BUSINESS is NOT a PERSON!! Sheesh!! Anyway, trying to correct such a mistake after the fact is not the breeze you might think. A flurry of postings ensued asking people to forgive my ineptness, to “LIKE” my new page, and send money to my new Super Pac.
Today begins a new week in the Meltdown studio and I am anticipating a good one.
