True or false?

True or false? It is a dick move when someone for whom you really want to work calls you up personally to tell you that you are not getting the job.

My wife plays in a rec soccer league with her friends from medical school. Today was the last game of the season, and they only had 8 players. (Apparently, you need 11 to field a soccer team.)

So they found me an extra pair of shoes and gloves, I changed from my jeans into borrowed warm-up pants on the sidelines, and stuck me in goal. I am 24, and I have not played soccer since I was 6. And I played goal maybe once then.

We lost, 5-1. Embarrassing.

A startling discovery

Normally I sit near the front of class, because in college I learned the hard way that when I sit in the back I don't pay any attention at all. Today I was running a few minutes late, so I grabbed a spot in the back of class so as not to disrupt anything.

I can't read anything on the PowerPoint projector. This is most unsettling.

Best way to be rejected by a firm

An email from a classmate reads as follows:


I was lucky enough to receive your rejection letter from [Firm]. They enjoyed meeting with you, but because they can only hire one person, they cannot extend second interviews to all qualified candidates. Any chance you have mine?


That's top-notch, don't you think?

Taking off for three days to visit my buddy who is on leave from Afghanistan. I guess maybe I lied about things picking up mid-week. Sorry.

"Smell that, Rabbit?" [sniff sniff] "Fear."

We were out of soap in the shower this morning, so I had to wash myself with one of those loofa body-wash thingies.

I smell like pomegranate martini. Ironhead Heyward would be proud.
