An advice fairytale
I am amiably chatting with a couple of co-workers about the hilarious AMA Hugh Grant and Meryl Streep recently did on Reddit around their new movie, when suddenly, and from out of nowhere, like a spider, my manager comes up to us and greets us cheerily.
"Hi. What's up?"
"Um, nothing much." We say. "We were just noting how amusing Hugh Grant is."
Then we all stood there awkwardly for a moment.
"There sure is a lot of shelving to get done!" My manager mentions, apropos of nothing.
So I say "I have found that if you let a butterfly go free, and it comes back to you, it is yours, but if you capture the butterfly, you just have a sad butterfly."
And then everyone was out of anything to say, so we all went back to work.
