Michelle's Nightmare

It was so awful. I was working from home, but I still had my same job. All of my bosses (boss, medium boss, VP) had offices in my house and so did Joanne for some reason. I had fallen asleep in Joanne's room the night before and when I woke up in the morning, I went to work, which was in the living room. My boss was sacked out on the couch. I started working. I had my laptop plugged into the TV, using the TV as a monitor.

People were in and out of the living room, just like my real office. They kept asking me if I had seen the show yet? I hadn't and, in fact, I had completing forgotten about the show. I went to my bedroom, which double as my medium boss's office. Stuck to the doorframe were a dozen phone messages for me that I had missed because I went straight to living room from Joanne's room. All of the messages were telling me to check out the show. My mom had sent a tape of it to me in case I had missed it.

I popped in the tape and the show was all about blogs and how the media and celebrities are using blogs these days. They showed a focus group who were viewing some blogs and talking about them. They showed one lady who was making comments about women's interest blog that I ran and there was a quick reaction shot of me and that was it. I looked really nice in the shot and the blog was presented in a good light so I was pleased.

This is where the dream took a turn for the worse - as if running an entire business out of my house wasn't bad enough. I popped out the tape and on the TV screen in the bedroom, my medium boss's email came back up on the screen. Someone had sent him a copy of an email I received talking about a contract that I was about to sign with another company. So, he knew that I was planning to leave. I was super panicked and I put the tape back in so that his email wasn't on the screen anymore and he wouldn't know that I saw it. Apparently, at the end of the tape was some extra footage from the shoot. I was horrific looking. I looked like I weighed about 500 lbs. and I was UGLY. I was so sick to my stomach watching that and I felt like I was going to cry. I turned it off and I shouted, "I am never leaving the house again!"
