Buckle up, Big Blue Nation. Make sure your seat belts are fastened and your seat is locked in the upright position. Get your bourbon supply stocked. Practice up on your beer keg tapping skills. Make sure your high blood pressure prescription is filled. Double check with your boss that the days you requested off in March were approved. If your boss welches and demands you work, quit. Do you really want to work for a boss like that? I didn’t think so. BBN life is too short and sweet to waste on a demon boss like that, anyway. You’ll thank me later.
