Okay, let’s be honest. If I’m still worrying about this business come Christmastime, I’m not going to be a very happy guy. Maybe I could be grateful for my security clearance on Thanksgiving? Or better yet, it could be the best treat ever on Halloween? (Well, except for Good ‘N Plenties. Those things are pretty great.)
I got calls from two different investigators today working on my case, so it’s officially up and running. How long it will take is anyone’s guess, but I’m hoping not very long. The way I see it, I’m at least twice as honest and upstanding as my wife, and her clearance took less than four months. So I think two months should be more than enough for me. I like that logic.
(Christmas is actually a fairly realistic — maybe even optimistic — goal date, as much as I wish it weren’t.)
