Hippo Hero

Hippo Hero

I got a contract offer last week and counter offered. Well, all my counters were rejected. *eyeroll* So it was a bare bones contract and they budged on nothing. I do like the job and the economic climate being what it is, I signed itโ€ฆ So Iโ€™m happy to be working but disappointed they werenโ€™t willing to compromise on anything. I guess that is not-for-profit. *shrug* Ironically they made a point of saying they donโ€™t pay like a non-for-profitโ€ฆUh, ya, you do.

Barb wants a Hippopotamus for Christmas. I said no since it would trample the flowers in the backyard. To compromise she gets this song:

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
Donโ€™t want a doll, no dinky Tinker Toy
I want a hippopotamus to play with and enjoy
I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
I donโ€™t think Santa Claus will mind, do you?
He wonโ€™t have to use our dirty chimney flue
Just bring him through the front door, thatโ€™s the easy thing to do
I can see me now on Christmas morning, creeping down the stairs
Oh what joy and what surprise when I open up my eyes
to see a hippo hero standing there
I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
No crocodiles, no rhinoceroses
I only like hippopotamuses
And hippopotamuses like me too
Mom says the hippo would eat me up, but then
Teacher says a hippo is a vegetarian
Thereโ€™s lots of room for him in our two-car garage
Iโ€™d feed him there and wash him there and give him his massage
I can see me now on Christmas morning, creeping down the stairs
Oh what joy and what surprise when I open up my eyes
to see a hippo hero standing there
I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
No crocodiles or rhinoceroseses
I only like hippopotamuseses
And hippopotamuses like me too!
