The great thing about being out of the office is that, well, you’re out of the office. The bad thing? You have to come back. At our office, the inbox is often the seat of your chair, and if it attains a certain linear altitude, you know you’ve been out a few days. Face it, while Mondays stink, to really release the stench requires a moral equivalent of a Monday, which is usually the first day back after a long holiday. This trip was no exception to this rule, and with an email inbox that is full, despite the out of office message, and the chair that has attained the same height as Mount Olympus, it could be a while before anything cogent rolls off my fingers. I shall return to regular posting, but it might be a few more days. In the meantime, buy my book, so maybe I can stop trying to climb the Mount Olympus that has grown exponentially in my office.
