Ah Ha! Time for a Change / Mi Cara Muy Bonita ¡Si!

this is me ...

Yes, for many years, my friends have been telling me that I shall be making $$ from this website of mine.  For all I know, I could be sitting on a gold mine.  Right?  Imagine, I just need to spend an hour or two a day to blog, and $$ goes to my PayPal account 24×7.  ¡La vida loca!  Before I know it, I’d have enough $$ to travel to Spain every so often.  No need to monitor the airfare daily seeing the price for 2 swinging from the low 2k to the mid 3k and then back to the high 2k.  Shall I buy?  Shall I not buy?

So I am selling everything you see in here and more.  For $14.99 per year, you will get to keep my yearly blog entries on DVD delivered to your doorstep every year today.  For a very affordable lifetime membership fee of $1,499, you will get to own everything I write since 1996 recorded on Blu-ray format!  OK.  I’ll have to figure out how to set up a PayPal account.  Stay tuned.

My workplace has been going crazy.  Really.  No one knows if we will still have a job tomorrow.  So, whenever bosses call for a departmental meeting, people do get freaked out.  And my colleague was summoned – together with his three other colleagues – into his boss’s room, this morning.  I know his boss.  I’ve worked with his boss.  A pretty senior guy.  So, another department bites the dust?  And here was the announcement …

Apparently, as the story unfold, because the stock prices of companies in general have come down quite a bit, everything seems pretty affordable.  We have finally managed to buy a big entity somewhere in the Central Asia.  Cool thing!  And his boss is mobilizing the entire team including the boss himself to take on the integration work.  Of course, everyone in the room was excited, including my friend.  Then his boss dropped the bomb: the entire department is relocating this coming weekend.  “For how long?” I asked anxiously.  “2 years,” my friend answered.  “Where are you heading?”  “Kazakhstan.”

“Kazakhstan?!” I screamed, “Is that the country featured in that movie …”  “Borat,” my friend completed my sentence.

Wow … how would I feel if I was in his position?

We paused.  I didn’t know what to say.  Then he continued, “My boss burst into laughter and asked why everyone was so serious.”

OK.  His boss got him and he got me.  Happy April Fool’s Day!

  1. Hahahahaha! Great humour! You know what, as my heart was pounding from “And here was the announcement …”, upon knowing about relocation to Kazahkstan and hoping to hear more… In the end only to find out that it was an Apr’s fool joke! Must have almost freaked out your colleagues! Haha.

  2. Haha definitely the title of the blog entry caught my attention. I thot cara meant “partner” haha then did I realise its “face”. I was really wondering what motivated you to sell your content until I realise its April’s Fool. Haha.

  3. G – You know, every year I want to write an April Fool post and every year, I just missed the time line. Well, I nearly missed this one too. Ha ha ha …
