So, Well, Bicycling....

is what i'm supposed to be writing about but i'm just a tad distracted these days so haven't had time to sit down and think much less write much less compose some sort of thoughtful essay on living life from the top of a bicycle but have spent my spare time instead interviewing a replacement Joe #2 which can be all-consuming in the midst of a crazy work schedule because these things take careful consideration of all the angles and the job description wasn't really quite finished yet because i didn't realize the position was actually open so when the applicant arrived i had to scramble to figure-out if he had all the correct qualifications and it appears he does have them all and more but

a full evaluation might
take a bit more




time

I loved the way you made me hold my breath during that post as though you were trying to kill your readers - though I was particularly concerned about myself only - which you nearly accomplished nevertheless xcept for that soft and hopeful ending….

good stuff, ob--i checked back here, oh, forty times over the weekend looking for the follow up to "hoh boy." you may find this helpful--my favorite question for 'these' 'kinds' of 'interviews': if you were a tree, what tree would you be?

the old bag said...

Alberto -- just writing the way my MIND is going these days...too much to think about!

Shannon -- Tree?? I'll have to ask that one...wonder what the response could be. re: checking back...I looked over my stats and saw I had a ton of hits on a Sunday after not having written anything for three days... :-]

A mighty oak. :-)

X Bunny said...

maybe multiple full evaluations might be needed

can't be too careful

the old bag said...

Trée -- you're just wanting a better Joe status! :-]

XBunny -- I think you're right...

careful

thorough

OB, after I found out I was in the #5 Joe spot I consulted a PR firm and they told me to use the "Mighty Oak" bit. Maybe I should ask them for a refund. :-)

the old bag said...

Trée -- Mighty Oak sounds mighty fine but if they didn't also mention proximity, you might want to be looking into a refund :-]. At least I can picture it...even though I can't see Franklin from here.

Trée said...

Is fourteen hours by car a problem? :-D

PR bastards. They never tell you the whole story. :-)

the old bag said...

...you know if I try really hard, I can almost see that oak down in Franklin....
