It's review time at the day job. Surprisingly, my new boss and most of my peers think I should be be kicked up a notch or two. No one's more surprised than me.
Of course, I've never believed I've had any talent. I'm clever and lucky, and somehow it's gotten me this far.
If tomorrow a gang of former co-workers beat me up and throw me from the back of a pickup, I will understand. I've gotten away with it for much too long.
But I will hike back down the Cascades and show up again.
