Do They Make a Power Flip Flop?

Guess who's headed back to the world of paychecks and racing away from home in the morning, happy to see the house in her rear-view mirror?

Yep. Ima is starting kindergarten in a few weeks. I managed to be a stay home mom for five and a half years. When Lotta was a baby I took a job at a daycare center just so that I could always be with her. So Lotta had a little daycare experience, but I was there for all the times she bit other kids, ate twice her share of snacks, and said her first word. (It was "more" -- which we tell her still fits her personality).

So I'm going back to work at the job I quit when I met Ben and moved to Virginia. The guy I hired has hired me back to help out. I think I'm actually getting a raise of 25 cents an hour over what I left at. Is that good or bad after a nine year hiatus?

Anyway, it's part time. Oh, and that guy I hired who hired me back? Raging republican. So much fodder for future posts, it practically makes me think they could pay me less! Nah.

Now I'll need to think up a fake name for him. I won't start until mid-September, so I (meaning you guys) have plenty of time to come up with something.

I recommend Crocs Flip Flops. Until these flip flops, I HATED flip flops. I thought they were uncomfortable and blistered between my toes. These are comfy beyond belief with support in all the right places.

I don't even think the cheap trinket vending machines standing near grocery store exists are 25 cents anymore.

As for fake names, Boss Hogg? You know, Republicans making living high on the hog the centerpiece of all things, plus there's that good ole boy connection.

since he's no a family member, I'm guessing Wundrun is out as a surname.

I.B. Blundrun?

"Stinky McNeocon". Or if you want to go the literary route, how about "Silas Marner". You can be "Raveloe".

Just a one question... does he know how many houses he owns? I am wondering if you will tell us the story of how you hired John McCain.

Anxiously awaiting your story!

You could use his actual first name with a "the", a la "The Donald". Good luck with the job!

with the bush economy that 25 cent raise is more like 4 cents

how about 4-cent
