i don’t think very many people noticed i was at work today. although the woman who works at the desk next to mine offered me an apple cider donut in the morning, which I could not turn down. i considered it a symbolic gesture.
and then there was the moment when i unplugged my headphones from my iphone, forgetting that the music would be blaring through the phone’s speaker… and it happened to be Dylan singing one of his overbearing awful songs from his born-again Christian period, which I am convinced has not ended. of all the ways to disrupt the silence of the office, that may have been the last one I would choose. his voice never sounded quite that bad.
and that got everybody’s attention.
