Humor,  The Adventures of Little G

Little G goes to work

On Sunday, as I was preparing for work, Little G made it known that he didn’t want to sit at home while I was at work. He, in fact, wanted to go to work with me.  I was a bit hesitant at first, but after a great deal of insistence on Little G’s part, I agreed to the idea.  So, shortly before 6 p.m., we got in the car and headed to the office.

As soon as we walked through the door, Little G made a bee line for my chair.  It’s a nice high back office chair on wheels.  By the time he was done goofing around, that chair had been spun both ways, the levers had been pulled, and the whole thing had nearly flipped over.  I swear it was like having one of my nieces or my nephew in the office.  Crazy!  I finally got him to settle down. Thank God! It’s a wonder the co-workers didn’t call the police with all the racket Little G was making in here.  Who ever uttered the words “there’s no such thing as too much fun”, was obviously full of crap. They’ve never met Little G. Little G goes to work
After I kicked him out of my chair, so I could get to work, Little G decided to hop up on the desk and look at the items in the corner.  He loved my Initech coffee mug. Apparently, the little ninja is as much a fan of the movie Office Space as I am.  I was amazed at how well he could recite lines from the movie.  And wouldn’t you know it, he knew the exact same lines that I did.

Little G then started looking through the programming books on my desk.  As he flipped through the pages of the books on PHP & MySQL, Drupal Development, and CSS, I could tell be the look on his face that the languages were beyond his comprehension.

I had to leave my office for a few minutes, and left Little G to hold down the fort. When I returned, I found him on the phone. Now, I don’t know who was on the other end of that call, but he obviously didn’t want me to know, because he hung up really quick when he realized I was in the room.  I explained why he really shouldn’t be making personal calls on my work phone, and despite the stupid look he gave me, I think he understood.  He promised not to do it again, but I don’t know if I believe him or not.  After all, those ninjas are known for being sneaky.

Little G also did a good job guarding my testing supplies on the desk. He even got a little pushy when it came to my bg testing throughout the night.  I was amazed at just how much he knew about diabetes.  He must have learned a lot during his stay at the Hoskins residence.

As he was looking through my meter pouch, Little G found the Underdog sticker I got from one of my doctors’ offices.  I explained to him the symbolic nature of the sticker.

As a person with type 2 diabetes (PWD T2) and congestive heart failure, I am the underdog; the odds are definitely stacked against me.  And every day is a battle against the evil forces that are waging war inside my body.  Some days I win, and walk away unscathed. Other days I’m beaten, and left wondering how I’m ever going to keep going.  But the fact that I do keep fighting is what makes me a winner.  A true champion of the underdog.

Little G was speechless when I finished talking. His silence amazed me because that little dude has a motor mouth that just won’t quit.

Before the night was over, Little G wanted me to take his picture one last time.  So, he posed in front of my “Is This Good for the Company” sign (another Office Space momento).  In the end, we agreed that the answer to that question was “Probably Not!”

And while it may not have been good for the company, having some company was definitely good for both of us.

    Outstanding! Ha! Love reading about Little G’s adventures, and seeing SuperG post comments in response! You should know: Upon his birth in January, the little ninja probably saw any number of OfficeSpace showings here at the Hoskins Household – that’s not even taking into account that he probably put in the DVD and watched it while we weren’t home. He probably also learned to quote that movie and others, such as Spaceballs, from yours truly. And I wouldn’t put it past the little guy to have been calling Riley or Shadow, or even his older bros or sisters who reside here, in California at SuperGs, and wherever else. I wonder if the D-Ninjas are plotting world domination like Siah and Shadow, or if they’re all working together… hmmm. I smell a future adventure blog here.
