A new plan of action

Me: I have a new idea.
The husband: Ok.

The husband: Ok.
Me: Ok. Since sending my resume and nice writing samples hasn’t proven to anyone that they need to hire me, the gloves are coming off.
The husband: Yes?
Me: Yes. Now I will use my gifts for evil. I’m going to commence Operation Scathing Editorial against everyone and anyone who wants me to stop will have to hire me. First come, first served.
The husband: You go, baby.

I also pitched an article to a conservative online commentary site (or news site, sometimes, I guess) and if they don’t get back to me in 10 days, they aren’t interested, says their submissions auto-reply.

Shout at me.
