The call of the temp agency (and nature)

Have you ever felt missed out on something? Like a job offer? Because you were taking a dump?

No?

Well, me neither.

Well in other news, I got a free haircut yesterday. The literary mullet is gone. *Sigh*.

And, no, it doesn't look like shit. Which is why I felt compelled to give the guy a good tip. "Don't run near a pool," I told him. "You could slip and fall."

You see, money is temporary.

Safety is forever.

Goodbye, Sherman Alexie...

...Hello, Adlai Stevenson.

Till I see photographic evidence to the contrary, that is.

J-by, you can come to work with me. We can be upset with the incompetence of our higher-ups *together*.

Regards,

Benny

Thanks, Kathryn. I guess missing out on a job opportunity is a small price to pay for the entertainment of one's friends.

Benny, I had to look that Adlai Stevenson allusion up in Wiki. Thanks for broadening my horizons. As usual.

Trevor, it *is* unfortunate that I had to cut off the literary mullet. But honestly, all those offers from The New Yorker in my mailbox were getting annoying. I mean, you'd think they'd publish on merit right? Nope. Just on mullet-tude.

And who the #$*@ are you, anonymous?

I'm just a pretentious name-dropper, James. Actually, I did a Google search on "bald authors" and then a Google search on "famously bald"- and Adlai Stevenson was candidate numero uno.

But even I knew who he was. Damn.

Cheeeers (as they say in Boston?),
