Okay, so I’m back from vacation now. How did that go? Well, I spend a week at home watching as much of the Summer Games Done Quick marathon as I could. Not that anyone asked. Really. I don’t think anyone at work noticed I was gone. Which is… good? Probably?
I remember Louis CK saying something about how if a person doesn’t have kids, then no one will care when they die. He seemed to think that is a bad thing. I disagree on both counts. For one thing, it’s possible for another person to be entirely dependent on you without them being your child. Second, if your death means disaster or heartbreak for someone else, I’m not sure that’s a good thing. I mean, I’m not into the whole “Yay! Someone will be sad when I’m not around!” thing.
So, I guess it’s good that nobody at work missed me. I won’t be here any more regardless, someday; why should I want that to make someone else sad?
On the other hand, this is work. People being okay with my not being around is probably bad.
