Is It Rude To Burp In Front Of The Governor?

So this afternoon the governor of our lovely state is coming for a visit with my boss and some other bigwigs in town. Today I plan to meet him (finally).

He’s been here a hundred times in the four and a half years I’ve worked here, but I have never gotten the chance to shake his hand. He seems like a decent guy, a real people-person and I would just like to say hello. Unfortunately, I am one of those employees that people seem to forget: You know, I’m just the Executive Assistant, (read: the one who makes sure all this shit gets done) so why bother?

Anyway, this morning I made it a point to tell my boss that I would appreciate being introduced. I mean, my vote carries as much weight as anyone else’s doesn’t it? He said sure. Cool.

Now I’m scared. Not intimidated-scared, but Arby’s Turkey-Bacon Wrap scared. WTF was I thinking? At lunch I was starving and it’s boiling hot outside and I didn’t want anything really “heavy” to eat so I thought I’d get me one of these wrap things and pretend it’s healthy. Only the wrap-thing has onions in it. Stupid me ate the onions. Now I am burping like crazy. Onion burps. Shit.

I can picture it, now: “I’m pleased to meet you, sir.” Braaaaaaap!!!

Maybe I should start cleaning out my desk right now.

Once when meeting the top dawg from corporate (when I was working)...I tripped over a trash can, practically fell on the floor...and got soda all over my leg. It's my thing, that I do!

Oh, goodie, I was hoping for an update. I was trying to recall any similar incidents in my life and couldn't remember any.

A *wink* huh? Cool!

R: Yeah, he's a charming fellow... Good ol' country boy. Good handshake, though. (I hate wimpy handshakes!)

Once, when my best friend and I were at our eleven hundreth trip to Medieval Times, we got seated in the bad guy section. He was mean and evil and killed all the other knights. Then afterwards, we shook our knight's hand and told him he was awesome. His hand was a limp fish and he said, "Thankssssss." We were SO disillusioned.

Lindsey: Oh, what a buzzkill! The fishy handshake with a thanksssss combo. Lame-O!!!

I wish Georgia's governor would come to my office so I could fart on him.
