Bah relief

Still unanswered is one of those Christmas card letters from a dear friend.

Which details, her former job as Consultant to important government thingies, her new job as Deputy Executive Director with an important place on Capitol Hill, mention of previous years of experience, and speaking out and writing about important causes.

The words "leverage", "experience" "implications" and "fiscal policies" feature in that paragraph. Briefly mentioned were volunteer efforts with a Foundation, and a Council. And also the Yoga classes taken 4 days a week for an intense workout over the last year.

Cow confesses she does no volunteer work at all unless somebody wants to count feeding and occasionally providing homes for critters. The last time Cow had an intense workout was when her monitor died and she had to swap it for another one. She doesn't think she has any leverage whatsoever and doesn't know the fiscal implications of anything except recklessly ordering another un-needed DVD from Amazon.

Back to obsessively looking up Banksy images, which seem fiscal-policy free.

Moo!

i would not have responded to the card, because i would have had no idea what she was talking about. i particularly did not recognize that word, "exercise". is that something to do with finance or that volunteer project thing?

Ah, that word. Fiscal. What is that? I thought that only politicians use it when talking about "fiscal policies".

Ms Moo, don't feel too uninteresting or unaware. Not everyone has the word fiscal in their vocabulary. Fiscal is a word used to put grown ups to sleep.

In fact, one could write a bedtime book for grown ups and call it "From Fairytales to Fiscal Tales".

By the way, why does she tell you about her "former" job......? What happened? Did she get the sack for use of the word "fiscal"? That's it, isn't it. She used the word "fiscal", got fired and then moved into a the Fiscally Department of Volunteer Yogies. AKA being a Deputy Executive Director person.

Weight...ha! Yes you are undoubtedly right, or perhaps "exercise" is in some language Cow has been meaning to study but so far, hasn't.

Linda:....zzzt! oh, erm, sorry, slipped off there...as you were saying "fiscal"?

The former job was mentioned in the context of having 10 years experience on Capitol Hill (Washington DC) and now "returning."

Cow is sure she was being brutally honest (not boasting) and is also sure, now that Linda points it out, that the Intense Yoga is filled with Fiscal Volunteers who may be directing something...

Oh Crikey - you've just reminded me that I have one of those waiting for me to respond - I usually tell them about my time in rehab...

Watercolor: glad Cow has company.

Lulu: this is a very good idea. Perhaps discussing in detail a bankruptcy, foreclosure, hideous fight with relatives, conviction on drug charges would also be entertaining. :)

I saw the word fiscal in this blog, and was instantly bored. LOL.

Just kidding. You never bore me. But fiscal-speak does, most certainly. Along with panicking me.

Can one be bored and panic-stricken at the same time?

I guess I can...

Karen: (Topiary quickly trimming all those boring words from her vocabulary) vowing never again to use them...

Should you be panic-stricken at any time in the future Cow recommends studying the latest Topiary World Domination Manifesto and either snoozing gently after looking at many carefully trimmed hedges, or rampaging around your neighborhood with sharp shears, making sure the neighbors now know your true calling (muscling their untrimmed shrubbery into cute shapes)

Moo!

i think i would have gotten to "leverage" and leveraged it into the trash bin....and then had to have a gin and tonic to feel better....

wonder why we had so few christmas cards this year?

did i send any out?

hmmmmm - the implications of a lack of fiscal policies dictated a lack of proper postage anywhere in the house contributing to the down play of communications....

that's MY excuse anyway....
