AKA: Things I Say That Apparently Only I Find Funny, Part Two
At my job, we go through a yearly review process called Focal. As a part of that, mid-year we do a baby Focal with our managers as a way to touch base with where we are, where we’re going, and how to get there.
I had the following conversation over work chat with my friend Jack:
Me: Can I list “was diagnosed with a terminal disease and successfully did NOT lose her shit” as a focal point?
Jack: “Dying but upbeat! Until she dies.”
“Then no beat.”
Me: Areas for Improvement: Dancing.
Jack: Notable accomplishments: Swagger.
Me: Strengths: Pretending that any of your shit even matters, in the grand scheme.
Jack is one of my favorites because he goes with it and is even more horrible than I am.
