The Latest Wrinkle
Hmm. I think someone got back to the DWP and told her I was about to bail out because of her.
She continues to be nice and has treated me like a professional all week.
There was a letter of praise for my performance from a very heavy hitter in our community that came in today's mail. DWP wanted me to reprint it in the magazine.
I told her absolutely not-- journalists should NEVER give the impression of self aggrandizement. She insisted. I said, "Sorry, it ain't gonna happen."
She said she'd kick the idea upstairs. I said it still ain't gonna happen.
Last night at the "big event," she saw a lot of VIP types hugging me and beaming when they saw me. I can't help it, I'm sort of charming when I want to be.
I think she might realize that running me off would reflect poorly on her.
Today I feel very pleased with her change of attitude. But I'm not an idiot and I have no plans to drop my guard. I'm just praying this streak holds up.
Here's a pic of my beloved cat James. It has nothing to do with this posting, he's just a darling boy and he deserves some publicity.
