I just read Netflix is going to make Margaret Atwood’s novel, Alias Grace, into a series. The first comment following the article was “I wonder if Jennifer Gardner will make a cameo. I loved her in the original Alias.” I have to go cry now.
Me: DIE YOU JUDGMENTAL BASTARD! DIE!
Office Manager: Today is going to be rough.
Me: It is a three day week. We’ve got this.
Office Manager: Campus Carry is officially in effect. There are multiple “emergency” requests to film on campus. The CDC needs a response on issue X. The EU visa changes and issues at US Department of State mean that we need an emergency amendment to an international agreement with an EU university. There are complications with a donation matter. And you have twenty-three contracts to review.
Me: It is 8:43 AM!
Office Manager: And we are just getting started.
Office Manager: Of course, dealing with this means you get to stay in your office and avoid human interaction.
I have no idea what I did to deserve the Special Hell, but a two hour drive with a three-year old turned into a five hour nightmare. Multiple wrecks, pouring rain, and standstill traffic. I am not a pedophile, nor do I talk in the theater. What did I do?????
