Running Late

Dang it, I left late for work today. I was going through my normal routine, which doesn't always involve me being late when I got enraptured watching CNN Headline News. Robin Meade was looking especially saucy this morning. She was talking to the sports tool and he was almost enough to make me tune out, when they brought in a hot college girl to talk about a college class that she was taking that involved going to the Final Four.

I was hooked again. I didn't catch a lot of what they were saying, but the professor was a genius to create a class so that he could go to one of the biggest sporting events in the country and take coeds with him. As the story came to a close I was about to hit the power button, when Robin began a story about the new "Girls Gone Wild" Restaurants that are going to be opened. What??? Double take. Additional video footage meant that I was once again transfixed to the television. I was always told in school that current events were important.

The story wrapped up and Robin introduced their Entertainment correspondent Adrianna Costa. Damn it, I was never getting out of there. Adrianna is one of my top three Entertainment Reporters of all time. She had some important news about movies opening this weekend or something, I don't know I heard her but not a lot of it registered at this point.
Mercifully, Robin threw it to a commercial break and I ran for the door. Several fishtailing-on-wet-streets minutes later I snuck in the back door (sighs, thinking about the obligatory "back door" jokes) and silently like the wind made my way to my office.

The professor REALLY would have been a genius if he'd figured out a way to take coeds to the new Girls Gone Wild Restaraunt.

They haven't opened yet, but I expect that's on his docket for next term.

I don't know any back door jokes. Can you tell me some?

Dagromm said...

Gyuss-You're a walking back door joke.

Gyuss Baaltar said...

So back door jokes are like totally AWESOME!

When you snuck in, did you use mad ninja skills?

Pokiman said...

Wow, nice dodge, sidestepping the "back door" jokes, but since when have you done anything "like the wind", aside from the obvious "back door" wind, which I can attest you've done silently many a times.

Watching Robin and Adrianna is my primary motivation for going to the gym (before work) in the morning since I never turn my tv on at home, as it would wake the sleeping children and make my getting to work on time an absolute impossibility!
