My morning so far: A documentary playlet
The working title for this is: There Will Be Vodka.
The curtain rises on a cubicle farm in suburban Long Island.
Me: Is there art for the cover story?
Head of Art Dept.: IT'S NOT READY YET! IT'S NOT READY!
Me: Okaaaaay ...
Ten seconds later, the art department's second in command distributes the entire news section.
Me: Why are you distributing this?
No. 2: I don't know.
Me: The first page went around already. And you didn't notice the second page was all dummy copy? [Our boss] asked you to distribute the third page.
No. 2 then redistributes the first page to everyone and throws away everything else.
