Email to my colleague:
Me: I still have the flu.
Colleague: When administration stopped sending status updates on your illness, I assumed you were dead. I was getting ready to put your job posting up.
Me: I almost died.
Colleague: I would prefer it if you didn’t die although I would very much like to write a combined obituary/job posting. So my feelings are very complex.
Me: My feelings are complex on this too.
On today's agenda:
Today we're making Matisse cut-outs as an adjunct to our technical documentation suite. I need scissors and construction paper.
And heard about town:
Person in coffee shop: "I know several people at Google."
Me: "I know people who started there years ago. Years. A-go."
