Wherein Sling commits a 'Limbaugh'..

Yep..I know I said in an earlier post that this would be my last week working for the O-Town Housing Authority,but it turns out I'm gonna have to back-peddle,re-group,switch gears,and otherwise cover my ass with a retraction.
I received the following e-mail from Toni over at Experience Works on Monday:

'Sling,..you are on the “hot” list for an office placement but that won’t happen over night. I know Nancy is hoping you can work over there in her office. There are some places opening up and I will keep you posted. We will want you to stay with the housing authority til then'.
Toni

See!..I've even compounded my transgressions by editing out my actual factual name,and inserting a totally-conjured-up-out-of-thin-air pseudonym in it's stead.
How have I fallen so low?

I know what you're thinking..
'But Sling,(or whatever your name is),..We trusted you!..And now we discover that you have taken that trust,and manipulated us into believing in your lies!'

To which I will respond by posting this cute picture of my cat to make you go 'AWWWW!',..in an effort to beguile you from the irrefutable fact of my misdeed.


I will now continue to proceed as if the entire incident never took place..

I'm not sure what I should be mad at you about, but whatever it is, the cat picture totally begiled me. Such a cute sweet puddy cat!

I never read your blog with the expectation of complete honesty, only that I'll be entertained and you've never let me down on that score.

Awwwwww, so sweet. Uh, forgot what I was going to say.

LOL! You make me laugh--loved this! :) And congrats on the job extension.

Hmm, I just realized that I only know you as "Sling"--even on Facebook.

Maybe someday you'll tell us (or at least little ole' me?) your real name? *smiles* The funny thing is, I can't picture your being any other name than "Sling"! It boggles my mind. :)

Is there a division inside a department where I can report my disappointment in the quality of transgressions coming out of O-Town? I felt all fizzy til I realized it was not even a slip-up but pretty damned good news. Hmph. (That wasn't from me, that was from the sin-loving legions lounging inside my head. They really look forward to stories of bad-itude.)

Bwahahahahaha...MHP, I know Sling's real name. And I sat on his porch more than once, drinkin' brown liquor more than once and I've talked to him on the phone and you know what I call him? Sling.

Now then, Sling, I would like to know more about Nancy and why she's so hot for you to be in her office. (That's what she said).

Charlene- Oh,he knows he cute..It's saved him from more than one butt-whuppin'.

Thinker- I don't mind misleading my readers on purpose,it's when it happens by accident that chaps my hide.

Jan- Exxxxcelent! :)

Miss HP- Sorry,I'm not allowed to divulge my real name,but I can tell you this!..The blog title 'Hymie Schlepfield's Domain' was already taken.

Booooda Babe- You can register a complaint with the O-Town Bureau of Disappointing Transgressions,and they will respond in some way,..eventualy,..sooner or later.

Dropsy&Puddle- (Geez..Could you pick an easier name to type fer chrissake)..
Is that YOU?..It has to be you!..
Boy,those were the days,sitting on the porch,drinking brown liquor,and spilling wine on Rainey's shoes.
We were young then,and had our whole lives ahead of us.
Nancy is a friend from Housing,also in Experience Works,who escaped to find a job in an office someplace..That's it.
P.S.
I miss you!

Whew. I saw the headline and was afraid you might be leaving the country or something.

Very cool...glad they saw the light.

Sling so happy to hear this good news. No the cat pic don't do it for me, do you have dog pics? Nicky and Nora want that cat for dinner.

now that you've confessed to being a fecking liar..you blew that bad boy rep by posting the pussy cat..all is forgiven..

Awwwww. Now, what was the rest of the post was about?

 
At 10:37 PM , Blogger Lorraine said...

Oh. Sadness. The Dropsy and Puddle thing is a whole other thing but not the thing you thought it was thinging and I'm sad that I was negligent in my blog identities when posting.

Sorry.

Not her. Just me. Upon whose shoes wine wast spilt.

Shit.

Billy P.- I really should renegotiate my contract..Brown liquor will likely be involved.

JP- I don't think I'll be leaving the country any time soon..It's really humiliating hearing all that laughter when I go through the full body scan.

Sage- I'm pretty sure there's some sort of quid pro funding for Experience Works by keeping people on the books.

Laurent- I'll see if I can't get our Labrador retriever to sit in the bathroom window.

Yellerdawg- WHEW!..I was really sweatin' retribution from the goddess!

Secret Agent Woman- Nothin' go on there..Just look at the kitty.

Rainey- Well if it wasn't who I was thinging,I'm glad it was you,and not The Child!

Your real name isn't Sling!??!

 
At 7:54 AM , Blogger Sling said...

Mom- Nope..I have a real name I use,to protect Sling's identity. ;)
