Topic for Monday Mission

For the next four weeks, I've volunteered to host the "Monday Missions" which were originally hosted by the talented Andrea, who subsequently passed the baton to Jennifer, who then passed it on to Painted Maypole, who has now passed it on to me! Anyone who wants to may participate in any or all of the "Missions" (or none of them, for that matter.) There are no requirements (other than publishing on Monday,) this is purely for fun. And so, with that said, here is the first topic for October: Congratulations! You are a top executive at a breakout new cable TV company. TV Guide wants to publish a sampling of your new fall lineup. For this post, please provide them with a description of some of the new shows.

Monday Mission: REJECTED

The following is my submission for this week's Monday Mission, the last of four hosted by Painted Maypole, which was to be written in the form of a rejection letter.

September 24, 2007
Dear Fat Cells, We recently received your resume and application for employment here at C.O.R.P.U.S. Amplus. We regret to inform you, however, that we are not currently taking on any new Fat Cells in the Cellulite department in which your resume indicated you have previous experience. In fact, we are attempting to scale back our entire Fat Cell operation, as we are similarly maxed out in the Hip, Abdomen, Upper Arm and Chin departments. We are directing your inquiry for employment to our sister company C.O.R.P.U.S. Minimus, who may be looking for a few additional Fat Cells. This letter does not serve as confirmation of employment there, personnel will contact you if there are any openings. Sincerely, E. N. Docrine Director of Personnel, C.O.R.P.U.S. Amplus Incoprporated
Painted Maypole has passed the torch on to me for the month of October, so for next Monday, October 1, be thinking of ideas for new TV shows...
