I'm sure I've talked about my fantastic boss before, but let me reiterate. My boss is fantastic. He's absolutely part of my chosen family. In general, everyone I work with is amazing. (Before you get too jealous - My actual *job* is not incredible, but as I have found from previous jobs, who you work with makes a shit ton of difference.) The people I work with are passionate about what they do, funny, generous, and *great* to drink with.
So my boss and I are working today and we get sidetracked watching Betty and Charlie jumping everywhere and being incredibly freaking cute. Basically, our office is a madhouse. Bossman asked if I am going to keep Charlie, since when I have a baby the office will be really full. See, he plans on having me keep working when I have a kid. He's never gotten married or had kids but he likes living vicariously through other people's dogs and kids. And he is really ready to add to the office menagerie.
I told him it would be a while.
Is it wrong to be sad I don't have a baby so my boss can be happy?*
*Obviously, bossman is not the primary motivating factor to have a baby. If that were the case this would be a lot creepier. OK, I am doing a total Kate thing here. I don't know why she wants to stop doing footnotes, because I think they are part of her coolosity.
