Nope, no pretty posts about old trees and steaming deer and the labor of a thousand men fading back into the ancient shores of the Mississippi.
I am back at work. After five lovely days off, I am back at work.
I answer the phone.
"I am trying to send an email." A person on the phone begins without preamble. "And the computer keeps telling me that it can't be sent. I know I am putting in the address and it won't let me! I need to send this email!"
Taken aback, I gently try to get a grip on the situation. "So you need some help with your computer?"
"No I don't need help with my computer!" She snaps. I've exhausted her patience. "Can I talk with someone else?"
I transfer her on upstairs without argument.
I guess my people skills grew rusty in my absence.
