Office Life

I'm FedEx'ing a letter to the same zip code I'm in right now. As a person who has spent a part of her adult life not working in an office, this not so uncommon occurence just makes me pause at the ridiculousness of it. That letter will be flown to Tennessee tonight and flown back to Houston in time for delivery tomorrow morning. What a wonderful world.

In other news, I saw a woman with a black t-shirt emblazoned with the word "HEALTHY". Huh. New dating technique? Advertising your fitness to bear some man's child? Letting everyone around know you're STD-free and aren't consumptive? I wonder if that includes allergies? The possibilities are endless!

The boring real answer is probably connected to one of the studies run by our researchers. Though, in response, that shirt makes me want one that says "PLAGUE CARRIER".
