I Hope You Are Settling In
By now everybody is back to work. Some have been at it for a long time already. I hope you are all settling in alright.
Many of you are probably still stinging, sore and swollen from the many days of indoctrination and team-building to which you have recently been subjected. It takes time to heal. Alternate heat and cold. Stay hydrated. At this point, you may or may not be glad you didn’t have the guts to light yourself on fire in the gym like you planned.
Last night I was rereading a couple of posts from around this time last year. One, in particular deals with Indoctrination Week and made me laugh. It is my predictions about what the week will be like before it actually starts. The predictions are pathetic and sad, but accurate. It is full of the anticipatory angst and panic of beginning a new school year. The comments are also very funny. It is called Oh, Crap.
As an aside, and to bring something slightly more to the table than an old post, I will share a song I heard this morning on the radio. It’s called Synchronicity II, recorded by The Police in 1983 on the Synchronicity album. It includes the line:
Every single meeting with his so-called superior
Is a humiliating kick in the crotch
So you see how that ties in…
Special thanks to my aunt Kathy for introducing me to The Police as a youngster.
Little know fact: The Police is the only CD box set I own.
