Every day that I rose at 6:20 to head to my IRS job, I asked myself, "Why? Why?" Yet, in a matter of days, I had the answer.
It was to meet my new compadre, Martha. Like me, she's a freelance writer who has a short-term goal of making some cash-ola and moving on! She also sees the world differently than most, has a sarcastic sense of humor, and the vocab to put it into words. We met on day one, and the rest will be history.
Less than 2 weeks ago, we decided to take the show out of the compound, and headed to SoCo for a Saturday night cruise. From institutions like Guero's (what fun!) to The Continental Club (we don't pay covers), we drank, we ate, we laughed. By night's end, we landed at Radio for a few beers and last call!
Flash forward a week and I'm saying "so long" to the IRS (6 weeks was good, thank you!), but Martha's still talking to me! Stay tuned as we take this show on the road next Saturday.
SIDEBAR: I was stunned on my last day at the IRS as my co-workers surprised me with beautiful flowers, a chocolate cake, and a card filled with heartfelt sentiments. It was a short visit but sweet after all.
