Deep into hour 13 of my captivity, my friend texted to say a dozen people were laid off at his job.

I got to thinking how I could use his writing and editing genius. And yet how I have to keep other people employed Just Because.

Because what, exactly? They can’t find their way out of the building?

Just think … I could instead take that salary, add a little to it and boom, get myself some help that I am not contractually obligated by the universe to put into air quotes.
