Having what we’d call a Bad Job Day (on all of them, including the contract / freelance stuff) — Suzy Kolber, phone your office. So screw it. I will instead meditate on what sounds to me like the perfect job. Had I known this existed when I was young — assuming it did — I could have spared myself a good decade of annoying interactions with editors, reporters, product managers, labs rats and UPS. Though probably not so much with the UPS; can’t have everything I suppose.
