What do you call a morning that’s better than the best one? Is it “bettestest”? Yeah – that sound about right! So this morning was the bettestest of this week. Without doubt! I woke up to some amazing news – I was placed by the Airline to the exact building I wished for : The 21st Century building (I really ought to use the law of attraction on everything from now on!).
I was over the moon running up and down the stairs trying find somebody to share the big news with. But everybody was asleep! When I finally stumbled upon Huggie’s 11-year -old sister having her breakfast and told her she didn’t look too impressed. Probably because it went down a bit like this:
Me (red faced and sweaty from running):”OMGIjustgotmyaccommodationandimgointolive- rightontheSheikZayedroadrightinthecitycentreinthisamazingbuilding!!!”
Little sister (chewing her pancake totally unstirred) : “Sheik what?”
I gathered I wasn’t being very coherent and Googled some pictures instead. That seemed to have done more than any words could have.
Little sister (putting the half eaten pancake aside): “Is that where you are going to live in Dubai?”
Me (nodding vigorously): … !!
Little sister (looking quite impressed): “That’s pretty cool!… Is this the best job you’ve ever had?”
I didn’t have to think very hard to answer that. Any job that puts me up in here must be the best job I ever had :
Today also marks another week of the six-pack challenge. More on that here.
