David Letterman and Me

I am in Tampa...I came home to:

a) Have my roots colored.
B) See my grand daughter on her birthday.
C) Pay bills.
D) Call our customers who owe us money.
E) All of the above.

If you answered All of the above...you are correct!

My Hubby is is Jacksonville...we don't do well apart and sometimes we don't do well together either.
I am leaning towards apartments next door to each other at the moment....

When Hubby and I are apart...I don't sleep in the bedroom...I fall asleep on the couch in the family room watching TV...I haven't a clue what I was listening to but I dreamed of David Letterman!

I was a guest and I did great! Yep!

He asked me my name and what I did for a living.

I said "Well, Dave...seems like I have now started supporting myself by begging people to pay me what they owe me!"
I may have said that differently in my dream because the people laughed really hard and I smiled.

"Hey, Dave" I said "You know that Palin joke was lame!"
He leaned in a said "I didn't know she had more than one child!"

"She has lots of kids!" I replied.
"Man, don't you have someone who checks these facts out?" I questioned.
"Nah, our budget is really tight these days."

"Oh... I hear you." I said and again it must have been my delivery because people were laughing so hard they were holding their sides.

So...I get up to leave waving to all my new friends as I go and...Dave starts walking me off the set.

Dave tells me " I think I do need someone to fact check my jokes! "How about you start right away...$20,000 a year, okay?"
I am thrilled (yep, I said thrilled) and say " Sure, Dave. When do I start?"

"Right Away...only we have just started asking everyone to only get a paycheck every other week...so next week no paycheck for you!"

"Sure, Dave...anything for you!"

So...I guess I am off to New York to work for David Letterman checking joke facts! I will make $20,000 a year payable every other week.
It beats what I am doing now!

Good for you Ronda! Lord knows he needs someone to check facts before he spews. Why NOT you
:)

I heard last week that there is a freeze on hiring over at the Letterman show. There's a fact you might want to check ;)

Em said...

I adore Dave - the writer who came up with the daughter joke, not so much.

You deserve a MUCH bigger pay check.
