Wolf Pack Got My Back, Jack!

Wolf Pack
Howl, Wolf Pack, HOWL!  The other day I talked about my day of rage.  Today I learned how much my Wolf Pack has my back.  Even though I vowed to move on and let how my supervisor feel about me be his problem, I am still processing everything.  I left work early to take care of some things at home and just unwind alone.  I was talking myself out of working out when someone knocked on the door.  It was the UPS delivery man with a package from Amazon.  I didn’t remember ordering anything from Amazon, but I did get a cryptic email from my mainman Mike, which said, “Something headed your way :)  If you have Mike in your Wolf Pack, you’ve got a wolf that will always have your back.  Mike sent me the book God’s Astounding Opinion of You.”  Thanks for havng my back through thick and though thin.
