I'm not feeling well today, so I won't be coming into work...possibly ever again.
Instead of coming into the office and doing my job, I am instead going to spend most of my day posting embarrassing Tinkerbell-like pictures of myself on my Facebook profile -- which surely nobody, including my boss, will see -- just to see if I still have my job by the end of the week.
No sooner did I post it than the entire world has now seen my Tinkerbell picture and my lame excuse for not coming into work, and I did get fired!
I can't imagine how that happened, considering that I posted the photo of me and my Tinkerbell wand on a very public Web site to which scores of my friends and work associates subscribe.
Though I am now out of a job, I am already fielding phone inquiries from Hollywood agents who are sitting around with way too much time on their hands due to the WGA strike, and whom are interested in possibly helping me sell my life story.
The elevator pitch goes something like this:
Mid-level banker and rabid "Peter Pan" fan takes on Tinkerbell guise to help raise awareness around the globe of the significant risks associated with self-paparazzi-dom on Facebook, and soon, in a strange life-imitates art-imitates-life turn of events, finds himself starring as "Tinkerbell" in the Broadway revival of "Peter Pan" opposite his personal hero, Cathy Rigby.
Boss, are you sure you don't want to hire me back with all my newfound celebrity?
I might just be able to help offset some of those unsecuritized debt obligations you guys are trying to clean up from the mortgage debacle.
And look, I even have a wand!Read More]
