Dear God,

I know I have a bad habit of getting in touch mostly only when I need stuff. If it makes you feel better, I'm like that with just about everyone I love.


Hey, you made me.

Anyhow, it's about tomorrow. I think I'm prepared. I think I am capable of presenting myself as an intelligent, organized, employable person with good hygiene.

Eyebrows are waxed, accessories are purchased, pants have been pressed, Spanx are packed. Lists have been made and updated. Gift for party is wrapped, directions written, time line carefully constructed and analyzed.

What I need your help with is A.) things going as planned and B.) Good, no make that GREAT, hair. I'm talking big curls, messy-but-perfect part with volume in the back, no frizz, all day hold. I know, it's a lot to ask. I will gladly forgo a future lucky hair day if I can have this one.

Also, please, please make them love me and hire me on the spot. I'm going to warn you now, if I don't get this job there will be an immense amount of crying and whining. In fact, I predict that it could send me straight into a major depression and you'd have to deal with me lying in bed and complaining at you for who knows how long.

So, if this isn't your plan for me, could we change your plan just this one time? I mean, just because I'm often changing my plans to suit you, so maybe just this once we could do it my way? Just a thought.

I do have back up plans. I'm thinking I'll bring a dozen cupcakes and tell them that one is poisoned and I won't say which one until they hire me OR, if they dare to attempt to not hire me, I will send them a rejection letter.

It would be easier for everyone if we didn't have to go with either of the back up plans, so if you're not doing anything else, like helping out those starving kids in Darfur or ending wars, I'd really and truly appreciate some good hair and a job.

You've got the job. You know you do. Just go in with just the right amount of humility so that you don't come across as too obnoxious (not the word I was looking for, but I lost that word just I was typing. duh!). I say all of that because I totally blew an interview a few years ago by being way too obnoxious. Not because I think you would be ;)).

Mitch, are you saying my cupcake plan is obnoxious?


Melly said...

I'll be thinking of you tomorrow. If you're as fun and likeable in person as you are on your blog, you're a "shoe-in". Wishing you good luck and great hair!

I am so very impressed with all the advance preparation!
Best of luck!

I hope that god get's your letter in time. Good luck I will keep you in my thoughts tomorrow.

Multislacking Mama said...

Amen, Sister.

Special thoughts for you tomorrow. You are going to rock their face off.


AFRo said...

Good luck girl. I'll put in a word for you with the MAN tonight too. I know you'll let us know how it goes as soon as you can, but seriously, don't leave us hanging too long.

We need to be in one of the lists of things to do. BLOGGING. Somewhere near the top?

Good luck, Ashley! Love the cupcake idea - I might use that one for other things!

Here's hoping you get the job.

File this under "needs a life" but I woke up this morning (wed) thinking, Ashley's job interview. Can't wait to hear what happens. Here's to rockin' hair.

Mitch said...

NO! The word I was looking for was confident. Sorry!

And good luck. You'll kick ass!

Melodie said...

Good luck today, Ashley! I'll be sending good hair vibes your way. And I'll speak to the Big Guy Upstairs on your behalf also.

It's too bad you can't show your interviewer this blog post so they can see how well you've prepared for the interview. It might give them some idea of how prepared you'll be for the job.

With fingers crossed I will say a prayer

That you land this job and have great hair

How's that for poetry?
