I'm in!

July 25, 2016 - 18:14 -- Admin

When you lived caked in pain you get used to deflecting questions about how you are travelling.For years I've used a cheery "I'm in!" if anyone says good morning and then asks how I am. The unusual blend of a happily implied illness enough to deflect a follow up.An ex boss of mine saw me one morning, asked how I was, and I gave my usual reply."Yeah," he said, "but you didn't actually tell me how you are."I was blown away. He was the first person who had never been deflected.

The purge

A call mid-motion

I had a career first—I took a phone call in the middle of a shit. I've never been in a position where I've had to do that professionally—through I do once remember taking a personal call whilst on the toilet some ten years ago—but as part of stepping up I had to stay in contact with people; make calls, receive calls and basically push things through.And so it came to pass that I was pushing something through when a call came in about pushing something through.
