    2. If there was a career in untangling Slinkys and necklaces, I'd be rich.
    3. If Hink manages to get paid more, then I want to be paid more, too.
    4. People call me with questions when they should be asking my boss.

    1. Many city employees are incompetent. 2+2=4, 4-1=3
    2. I picked up 3 large bags of trash from one of my vacant lots. I don't get paid enough.
    3. Too many people have called me today.
    4. I missed the marketing webinar. I guess that's ok since I don't have speakers for the PC and have to read the slides.
    5. I really need a new job in a lower cost of living area.

    1) Dental surgery follow-up on Friday left my mouth/surgery site sore for 2 days.
    2) Saw a movie with hubby - nice date night!
    3) Was off yesterday for the holiday, so I worked on stuff around the home.
    4) Did not want to come to work today!
    5) As a result of Friday's dental visit, I'm afraid to chew on one side of my mouth.
