Catching Bees with Honey


My horoscope advised that I should be nice to authority figures today; specifically, "don't automatically fight with them" -- Moi?? I heeded the advice and was sweet and patient (and generous) from 10AM until 3PM when one-year residency visas were stamped in our passports. Most of that time was spent sitting on a narrow, slatted bench in the local government office (I still feel the imprint), but I had a book and met some nice folks in a similar predicament so the time passed relatively quickly. And I did recognize that the authority figure in question knew her job and that it was best just to follow her instructions. Success! Paradise is mine for another year!

I'd like one of those stamped documents that officially state that "WORK IS NOT PERMITTED'. (But then go ahead and define work.)
