I got a job at the shower curtain factory. It’s my duty to make sure that the shower curtains have the correct number of holes. The industry standard is 12 holes. The guy who had the job before me could only count to 10. He was very good at catching the shower curtains that had 10 or fewer holes. But any holes more than 10, and he was just guessing.

I was writing on a TV show for the first couple days of this week. Every floor of the building houses a health insurance company except the floor of the show’s production office. I got onto the elevator the first morning with some guy I’d never met. He pressed the button for his floor and also, without asking, the button for my floor.

Then today, all the writers went to lunch together. We were in the elevator with a woman from upstairs. The woman said, “I wish I could wear jeans and Chuck Taylors to work.”

I have to say, it’s been a lot of fun writing for TV. But tomorrow, I go back to being the sad person on the elevator.

My current song-on-a-loop is “Alive” by together PANGEA. Their new, excellent album is called “Badillac.” They just went on the road so catch them in your town soon.

I just read the craziest thing ever. A former college football player was shot and claimed it was in an armed robbery attempt. He later recanted and said it was self-inflicted. Today, he admitted that it was a suicide attempt.

The gunshot wound was in his arm.

Now, I don’t want to say football players are dumb but… Actually, what very little I know about him, he seems very smart. He got a job at the state Attorney General’s office after college which sounds way better than any job I’ve ever had in the 15 years since I graduated. And I don’t mean to make light of depression… Actually, that’s a lie. My whole act is making light of depression. But that’s my own depression. I’d never make fun of somebody else’s depression

But the arm?
