"Now is the perfect time to start bee-keeping…" –Craig's List Ad, Farm and Garden
With my 2nd conference call moments away from beginning, having just emerged from a long and ludicrous meeting on…meetings…I couldn't agree more. What I need, right here at my desk, is five or six hives brimming with angry stinging insects and nothing to pollinate for miles. It's the perfect metaphor for my life, and yet these winged hateful creatures would actually have the incentive to pull off what I can only dream about: Stinging my co-workers. Making them run swatting and welty from my cubicle, never to return…with their spreadsheets and their long tedious questions about data and can I make a map using their non-geographic data? YES, it would be called a SPREADSHEET. Bzzzz bzzzzz.
