To say that the Mayor is personally offended by my new work hours is the understatement of the year.

This is the door outside our home office.

As I see it the Mayor has really forced my hand on this one. He told me he couldn’t live without his park days (where the prince gets picked up, taken to a leased plot of land just for our dog wrangler’s use, with hills, streams, toys and cookies re: dog paradise) and I told him “get a job man”. And then he told me that, if I just got two jobs, then he could have his cake and eat it too, so to speak. So that’s essentially how I came to have a full-time job + a part time job.

I have to take weekly conference calls at night and at first, I let the Mayor join, I mean really, what’s the harm?

This right here, my friends, is the harm. The Mayor’s all-time favorite toy. A durable canvas coated Kong with a tail and wait for it, the world’s loudest squeak. A toy so spectacularly accepted into the daily routine of the Mayor that we had to get Clyde one too. (Sorry?)

The Mayor is obsessed with merging the squeaks of this toy with our voices. It seems to make a showing every night just when we sit down for dinner. I think you know where I’m going with this. It’s called the least productive conference call you’ve ever attended, where some yahoo is in the background making so much noise, your co-workers are reminded that you no longer work in a quiet, professional office.

So the Mayor got banned.

And here he waits, with painful patience, until the dreaded office door re-opens and he can again be close.
