9 to 5

New socks in progress...

Yarn: Dream in Color Smooshy. Color: In Vino Veritas.

Pattern: Nine to Five by Nicole Hindes.

Of course I am deep into irony right now wishing that my job was only 9 to 5.

Regardless, who among us can't relate to this classic movie/song/way of looking at the world?

Strangely, I remember the first bit by heart:

Tumble outta bed
And stumble to the kitchen
Pour myself a cup of ambition
Yawn and stretch and try to come to life
Jump in the shower
And the blood starts pumpin'
Out on the streets
The traffic starts jumpin'
With folks like me on the job from 9 to 5

This other part is less familiar, but worth a gander:

They let you dream
Just to watch em shatter
You're just a step
On the boss man's ladder
But you got dreams he'll never take away

On the same boat
With a lot of your friends
Waitin' for the day
Your ship'll come in
And the tide's gonna turn
An it's all gonna roll you away

Just, wow.

Thank you Dolly Parton!

Didn't Dolly Parton also say "Take This Job and Shove It"?I bet you can't wait to sing those lyrics. In the meantime, keep producing those beautiful socks!
