It was a trial by fire, for sure, Helga. Fortunately, my first few guests became very dear friends, so I had seen it could go well. And, well, I did not want to return to an office, so there is that. Yes, I would rather scour the box spring with a toothbrush and diatomaceous earth than I would sit in a cushy office with air conditioning.

Just choked the life right outa me. Sitting in a weird revolving chair under fluorescent lights, which causes strange things to happen to the body, wearing a coat in summer because of the air conditioning. Never seeing the sunlight. Overhearing Monday morning water cooler conversation about tv shows I never heard of, shopping trips to buy garish sofas, gossip about who the manager is secretly dating. Enforced Christmas parties. Like nails on a chalkboard.
I did enjoy my last office job though. I would show up at an office for only an hour and a half, cause some trouble, then go to another office and do the same. That was fun.
