On being a grown up

So I know I posted about this a way back when my employer was initially talking about it doing this, but now I have to actually make a decision. On long term care insurance. Who really thinks about these things when you're 30 (almost 31 EEK!)? Well, I do obviously since it is my job to know about this stuff. And now that we are offering it, I'm trying to decide if I should do it. I can get excellent rates because I'm 30 (almost 31), especially compared to what I could get if I were older. I am also guaranteed acceptance so no medical questions (and if you have ever watched daytime television, all those commercials for Coloniel Penn life underscore the importance of no medical questions.). Why would I seriously consider it... my sister. When she was sick my mom was there taking care of her the whole time until she died. I don't want to do that to someone. And I'm pretty sure... I don't want my mom doing the caring for me anyway. :D blargh I don't want to be a grown up.

In other grownuppy things, it has now been decided that they should formally interview me for my boss's job. Sigh, originally I didn't have to, but this will be my chance to prove that yes really I can do this job. The interviews are tomorrow. I may vomit with nervousness.

You so should do the LTC. Seriously. It's pretty cheap.

And good luck! I command, no vomiting!

I agree with KtP and I can't believe they haven't fucking decided yet.

Good luck, sweetie!

You've been preparing for this mentally for a long time... at least the part of plotting revenge upon your competitors :)

And if you vomit in the interview, make sure to swallow, smile [lips clenched], and then say "mmmm.... mmm... do I love working here"!

Good luck with your interview. The job is yours!
