So it's 4:30. And I've been at work since 10 a.m. Now, I realize that to most people, this isn't a big deal, but because I only work part-time, I'm supposed to be out of here at 4 p.m. on Fridays.
And I don't get to leave anytime soon. After driving 20 miles to Dresden to cover their Homecoming and realizing that it doesn't start til 5, and driving back....I have to go back. At 5. To cover the Homecoming.
Then drive back to the office and write the story.
Then, at 10 p.m., I get to go to the Wal-Mart and stand in line for a Harry Potter book. And interview children eagerly awaiting it. Until 12:30.
So, all in all, I won't get to leave the office until about 8 p.m. tonight. And then tack another 2.5 hours on.
There's nothing I like better than a 12 and a half hour work day.
Bring on my paycheck.
