"Welcome To The Show, Meat"

Mr. Sun has some advice for new graduates in this end-of-school season. Here's a sample:

*Make a list of the things you want to do before you die. Be as open to your heart as you possibly can. Now, throw that ridiculous piece of trash away and get your ass to work. The ball is over, Cinderella.

*Contrary to what you may have heard about business, you should not think outside the box. You should get your green-as-grass self back in the box and don't come out unless it's to bring me some hot coffee and do my work so I can take credit for it. Welcome to the working world, Rookie.

Now go read the rest. "Heh," as they say, "indeed."

Yips! to Joanne Jacobs.

UPDATE: I should just clarify that the fact that I find this list funny has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that one of our new summer interns called me "Sir" today. Nope. Nothing. Zilch. Why, I'm forty years young!

Wow you're forty. That's ancient.
So what was it life like before indoor plumbing and electricity?

You just shush up young phin. Back in my day we respected (insert whistling sound) our elders. And took their advice, sonny. 40 is young, even though we had to walk 5 miles to the outhouse, in a blizzard (even in July) uphill both ways.
