The usual over-the-top “How are YOU today?” greeting was hard to respond to this morning. I knew she had the power to fire me on the spot, but maybe that’s what I was asking for when I said, “Well, I ‘m sober. Let’s just settle for that this morning, huh?”
She, now in tears, accused me of twisting her words around and veered unstably into her corner office.
I sipped my coffee and waited for my next email to come through.
