Just One of Many Things I Never Thought I’d Say

When it’s 4:00 in the morning and you’ve just managed to impale yourself with the business end of the syringe you use to give your cat his daily insulin shot, and your thumb is bleeding like Old Faithful and you’re alternating holding it with a tissue and wondering if you’ve just given yourself enough insulin to cause a diabetic coma in a non-diabetic (before realizing you stabbed yourself before you loaded the insulin in the syringe), you don’t spend a lot of time wondering what kind of bandage you’ve just yanked out of the package and slapped on your gushing wound.

It’s only later, when you are administering a very professional test in a very professional setting with very nervous potential employees – said potential almost entirely dependent upon their performance on this test – that you realize your thumb has a woody.


And you point it out.

To a room full of young men.
