One Breakup Away From Being Unemployed

I have to say, even though there's been a downturn in the economy, I haven't had to worry about losing my job.  KNOCK.ON.WOOD.  I realize as soon as I say this, Karma will be right there saying, "Oh really, I'll fix her!"  But since I work in a small office, and people always need insurance, my job is pretty secure.  That is, unless my boss finds out about my on-the-job blogging addiction!  I'm sure there are plenty of women out there that are real estate/insurance agents, married to the chief of police and have two sons. Right?  Not like he's going to put two and two together and figure out it's me, if he ever does stumble across this blog.  Right? 

Well......bring in Beaver and now my job is in jeopardy.  Beaver asked someone to homecoming.  Last Thursday night, as I'm cleaning the kitchen, he comes in and drops the bomb on me.  Our little town has a tradition of the cheerleaders decorating the boy's football lockers before the games.  Beaver says he's going to put a note in his locker for one particular cheerleader asking her to the dance.  He's going to give her his combination and ask her to get something out for him so she'll find the invite.  I don't know if I was more in shock that Beaver was actually sharing this info with me - because he NEVER discusses girls with me - or with fact of who the cheerleader is.  He has known this girl since the 3rd grade.  They've become really good friends over the last two years.  He picks her up for school every day.  Ward teases him about her being his girlfriend and he always says, "We're just friends, dad!" They're friendship means a lot to him and I know it does to her, too.  I remember having guy friends in high school.  They were always the best friendships.  No catty backstabbing that sometimes occurs when girls are friends.  Beaver and the cheerleader have gone from being "just friends" to boyfriend and girlfriend.  Beaver's first girlfriend.  And this girlfriend isn't just any girlfriend.  She's my boss' granddaughter.  His first granddaughter....She's also the daughter of my co-worker.  I work for the cheerleader's grandpa and with her mother.

Really Beav, of all the girls at the high school, you had to pick this one?  Can you imagine how uncomfortable it is going to be to work here if something happens to their little budding romance?  And by "if", I mean "when".  Because let's face it, I don't really see 10th grade relationships having any longevity.  I may be wrong.....wouldn't be the first time. So....someone will break up with someone.  Let's say Beaver breaks up because, well he's Beaver and really, he's 15 and doesn't have it quite together yet.  The cheerleader's heart is now broken and everyone's mad at me for giving birth to the little heartbreaker!   Or, let's just imagine, Beaver does get it together.  I mean he'll be 16 in a little over a month. Good Lord!  My baby will be 16 soon!  16?  Already?  Really?  16 years.  Wow! Ok.........anyway.  Just imagine, Beaver has got it together and things are truckin' along fine.  Then out of the blue - she breaks up with him!  Why?  Because he forgets their "3 month anniversary" - I mean who wants to date a guy that can't even remember their anniversary EVERY MONTH?  Once again, everyone is mad at me because I gave birth to the insensitive lout.  See?  See what I mean?  Either way, I'm done.........

Good Lord, there isn't enough Zin on God's green earth to get me through this relationship!  I may have to up my game on this one.

My baby turns 16 tomorrow - where did the time go?

Hate to burst your bubble here, but you know me always the devils' advocate, the worst possible scenario, is Beaver and Cheerleader make 3! Guaranteed to lose your job on that one Junie...

KAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You watch your mouth woman! Now I have to worry about being a grandmother in addition to losing my job?????? If I make it through this, I'm going to need that number for the Betty Ford Clinic!

Oh and anyway, we're Catholic. We don't have sex before marriage!! Our kids are just born prematurely - just like Wally was.....oh dear, I'm gonna need a drink.........

Kat said...

ROFLMAO - you crack me up.

Jenn said...

I'm sure it will all be ok--unless, of course, your boss is crazy, in which case it may not be ok at all when this thing is over. ;-)

Becca said...

Oh the Beav is in love!

I am sure that everything will be just fine. Relax mom, your boy is growing up and he is sharing with with you. You are raising great kids. And work, well, if your coworkers don't realize that these kids were destined to be together, well, they are blind! :-)

OMG, Kat took my comment.
That's why I totally heart you guys.

Just tell the Beav to tread carefully or he will be flippin burgers instead of going off to college. You know... because you lost your job.... and couldn't afford to pay for his college.
Thought I'd save you the trouble asking wth I was talking about.

Tracie said...

KAT! That's what I was thinking!

Kat said...

Apparently it is quite obvious that great minds think alike since Jane, Tracey and I all had the same thought...

I am so blessed to know that June pointed out that she, I and Tracey were all pregnant together some 16 years ago. I'm thinking Jane may have been in on this too. Anyone want to put money on which of us was the largest? Pretty sure I can hands down win this wager!

I do however love the fact that I shared this with some of my favorite pals, just didn't know it at the time.

Now if I could get all of you that I love and miss so desperately to get off your arses and blog more often, we could share many more meaningful moments. June, Jane, Tracey - I'm talking at you!

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=http://universalages.com/hot-news/what-happened-in-haiti-is-it-related-to-haarp/]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

Online guitar lessons are a great way to learn guitar. Cheaper and more convenient than private studio lessons, the technology is now at a point where the difference in quality is nonexistent and actually has many advantages.
