I was chatting with a friend. She had not replied to my ping's and when she finally did, she replied "been very busy with work..." (standard reply when you do not have time to chat)

I replied spontaneously, "so, work is worship and I'm standbyship?" she had a great laugh for the rest of the afternoon and said, that I coined a new word.

We give so much attention to work and forget the fundamental mantra that we work to live and not live to work...

El Mentor

My supervisor at work and I constantly go at each other, with what we call "witticism." I learn a lot from my supervisor.

One day at work, I was very hyper and at my mischievous best. My supervisor labeled me "a demented," in front of few other colleagues.

I consider him my mentor teaching me many things in life... I (with my basic-mischievous-instinct) immediately replied and labeled him a "dementee-mentor". Hence the new title el mentor - dementee-mentor.
