My day was a short one, and now I am drinking my lunch.

Dear Social Services job:
I love you like a fat kid loves cake.
No, really.

Today I got to meet two of the most stunningly wonderful-looking little boys. So much so that I thought I might gnaw on their cheeks upon the sight of them. Then I remembered that I have a job because people actually do shit like that, and I reined myself in. I made do with merely beaming like a big ole idiot at them.

They had shocky white-blonde hair and the coolest electric green eyes you’ve ever seen. There was a smattering of pale freckles and blocky, oversized dungarees with hands shoved deep in pockets. Baby-cool. The oldest was five, his little brother (who was three) looked like he’d been sprouted from Five’s bone marrow or some shit. Identical save for six, seven inches in height.

I kneeled to greet them on their level, as is my custom.

“‘Sup, sweet thang?” is how Five greeted me. Oh boy.

Some four hours later, after a visit with gramma had been pounded out, I nestled Three in his carseat for the impending ride.

“Lean back, little guy, so I can get you all buckled in,” I said.

“Suck it, bitch,” was his reply. Yes indeedally-doo, they are both charmers.

    And just how old was YOUR charmer, Jen?

    See, the thing is, people who don’t work in the field canNOT understand why, after I said, “Hey, that’s ugly, and we don’t talk like that to Miss Jett, shmoopykins,” I shut the door, went behind the car and laughed like a woman possessed.

    It’s the whole laugh-or-cry mentality, partly.

    But mostly, a three-year-old kid who looks like an angel but talks like the devil pales in comparison to the four-year-old last month who had a perforated bowel resulting from severe molestation or the 10-month-old from last year gleefully chasing and eating cockroaches (and said critters being the babe’s main source of nutrition).

    I used to be one of those idiots that said, “I seen some SHEEYUT, lemme tell ya.” Well, I sure had, but I’d not seen THE shit.

    Funny thing is, there’s always something tomorrow that will top today. ALWAYS.

    WOO! Go you, J. Nel, and go me!

    I was once a charmer…. I used to hide in the clothes racks at Walmart, strip down nekkid, and go a-streakin’ trhough the isles.

    I was the li’l nekkid Walmart gnome.

    Meanwhile, these two sound like people I would probably be powerfully attracted to, if they were about 18 years older…

    Which is sad. I’m gonna end up beaing some country song. “I can change ‘im, mama! I can!”

    GeebusLAWD, help me…
