A Not Bad Day

It was a bad day at work. The particulars don’t matter, just that if computers can store a ton of data, you can also lose that ton of data in a blink.

My boss was melting down through the day as we worked through it, but as we left for the day she said to me,

“It’s just data, right?” [1]

“Yep,” I replied, “nobody got hurt and we all get to go home.”

“Where we’re loved.” she answered.

And that’s the truth. I’ve had days [2] where someone got hurt, where someone didn’t get to go home.

It’s just data, and I’m at home, with my beloved.

It’s not a bad day.

1. I have the best boss ever.

2. Not too many, but even a few are too many.
