This morning, I am the keynote speaker at a workplace safety conference.

I like this part of my job, and I am trying to expand the OSHA defense side of the business and use it as an angle to open up some business in construction. Anyway, I get to pretend I am important, then I get to go back to the office where my employees will tease me. We are moving in a couple of weeks, and my assistant is determined to use this as an opportunity to clean out the pit of despair that is my office. I keep telling her I will do it, and she shouldn’t have ro, but she just rolls her eyes and tells me she will take care of it.

This woman has a lot of patience. I think I owe her a raise.
