Strangers Among Us


For years I have been hearing about these mythical creatures. They are supposedly real people, who live and work among us. Almost alien like. Or like on that old 80's show "V" where the aliens walked and talked and looked like humans but underneath they were (gasp) reptiles!

But the people I am referring to really do exist. Who are these people you might wonder?

PEOPLE WHO GO HOME FOR LUNCH!

Yes, it's true, they really do exist!!! This rare breed of people who live within a short distance of work, so everyday they can make a quick jaunt home, let the dog\cat out, check the mail, and eat lunch in the comfort of their own home. They are not like the rest of the world who commutes from excruciating long distances everyday, forced to eat lunch in a stale\stinky staff lounge. Nope, these people work in the same area they live in. (Double Gasp)!

And how are you wondering do i know they exit? Because hold on to your hats folks, I'm shedding my skin, taking off the mask,

I AM ONE OF THEM!!!
(gasp gasp gasp gasp gasp gasp gasp gasp gasp gasp gasp gasp gasp gasp gasp gasp!!!!)

Yes, I am among the elite who can go home for lunch! Oh what joy, what splendor.
My dad would say at this moment: "Are you bragging or complaining?"
Oh I am bragging Dad, bragging my little hear out!!!!

I love it! ESCAPE!!!!!! FREEDOM!!!! I AM OUTTA HERE!!!!! Commuting is a four letter word in my book now!!!

I LOVED the show "V"! I'd flip up the sign all the time when I was little.

Lunch at home...of course this hermit is jealous!!! But-dowtown Minni at my fingertips is a close second.

Yes, but you are a short commuter gal now!
Buddy and I used to go ga-ga over V! We still talk about it! That show should be a blog post of its own! hmmmm....

I've had a few gigs where I could come home for lunch! Loved it!! I thought I was the only one who liked the V show!! Our neighbor makes her husband and her son lunch everyday too. Sometimes I feel like just popping over to see what they are having. She runs a daycare and they still come home for lunch. Well, I really need a nap. . . Jada likes to party all night and both her and Jakob are actually sleeping right now! Nighty night!

yeah...2 twenty minute naps a day while i'm magically transported to and from my job is like winning the lottery after commuting to anoka for so long!
