THANK YOU SIR MAY I HAVE ANOTHER

Tomorrow I’m going back undercover to do some more hands-on research for my dystopian speculative fiction novel.

I’m currently working in a call center, pretending to be one with the corporate hive mind.

I have integrated myself well.

I am using a picture of my dog as a screen saver:

Dog adopted for use of images in cubicle in lieu of children who are more expensive and clingy

Small appealing dog adopted for use in cubicle photos will also eat food I drop on the kitchen floor which reduces expense of Swiffer refills

I have posted several ironic Dilbert strips in my cubicle. I have strewn stress relief toys across the surface of my desk. I even sprinkled pop tart crumbs into my keyboard.

My cover is secure. They truly believe I am one of them.

I have gained almost enough experience and weight these past four years to give my novel the gritty real-world feel that has made books like “1984”, “The Handmaid’s Tale”, “Jennifer Government“, and “Wool” so popular.

The name of my work-in-progress is:

“I AM NOT FOND OF MONDAY”

  1. I’d like to give a shout-out to myself two years ago. It’s all good! I remember writing this. I remember that job. I remember thinking that “two years from now I will be in a different place (I hope)”. I was right. I’m not yet making a living as a writer (which I thought I would be doing) but I am living the dream. Keep it up, former self. Only another year before you move to the Cove. Oh, and you still have that little dog. The next one will be named Swiffer.
