One of my bosses took me on an emotional roller-coaster the other day.
“You know, Jay, I’ve been reading that blog you write for.”
“Um… great. What do you think?” (Slight feeling of dread)
“I like it. Some of the pieces are really good.”
“Really?” (Big internal sigh of relief and hope, mixed with delight.)
“Yeah, I got a real kick out of that one about the librarian and the airplane. That was great.”
(big internal sigh of disappointment) “Sure, I’ll be glad to pass that along to the guy who wrote it.”
So, Kevin, my boss likes your stuff. Apparently mine ranks up there with chopped liver.
