Work is a very odd place.

Jackie and I were discussing that since we are the only two Exec. Assistants, we are made to do ludicrous things, among them, planning for 200-person parties from start to finish.

We just got done with one such event and Jackie looked over at me in the cab and said, with a straight face,

"You and I are like POW's. We've survived a brutal war, but we get to come back to the land of the living where they have no idea what we've been through. They are so free. We were once like them. We are no longer."

And I couldn't stop laughing, but it was one of those revelations where we knew we were scarred forever.
