Searching for Intelligible Language

I’ve tried to think of creative ways to advise my readers of my latest news. But, the words come in spurts like, “Yee Haw!”… “Woowee!”…”Ahhhh!” “Yeeeeeesssss!” and “Oh, My Goodness!”

Yesterday was the rule of five (the final selection process)…I waited and waited for the call…I heard through another officer that they completed the task about 5PM or so…No call for me that night…and so today, I was afraid to get on my home phone or my cell phone…certain that I would miss the call, I kept the phones beside me everywhere I went in the house. I’ll let you in on something. Phones and pots are about the same in that “watched pots never boil” and “watched phones never ring.” I gave up, laid the phone on the bar and sit down at the kitchen table with the latest Weight Watchers magazine. As I flipped through the magazine feeding the anxiety as many women do with the thought of food…it rang. I started yelling, “There it is! There it is! That’s my call!” Sure enough it was. When the Human Resources lady who has dealt with me now for sooooo long, asked, “I take it you are still interested in a position with the police department?” Even though my spirit was bouncing off the walls all over the room shouting, “Rock’em Sock’em Robots! You bet I am!!!” I remained calm and very professional answering, “Yes, Ma’am, I am still very interested.” The conversation continued with further details regarding the next physical testing day and scheduling for the medical exam. She further advised the class is scheduled to begin December 10th.

And so, I’m in. I’m ready like Freddy. I’m in like Flynn. I’m seriously deliriously ecstatic! I’m doing the dance!
