My Bad, I Thought Tomorrow Was July 23

He said, “I work with the caterer tomorrow.”

I said, “I thought tomorrow was your big day.”

“You mean July 14?”

“Yeah. What happens tomorrow?”

“That’s when probation is terminated and the gold mask is removed.”

“Is there a ceremony?”

“Nah, from Friday the 13th, last week, I can’t make any money till the mask is removed. I’m working tomorrow but I won’t get paid till next week so I’m good.”

“And the Golden Mask will be removed?”

“Tomorrow night and my soul shall be returned unto me.”

“Cool. See you tonight.”
