There’s been a good sign. Round one of the property damage battle goes to (ting, ting, ting)…Snivelly!
It’s only the first round. My other boss phoned me and asked if I was OK. I said, “Well, my stomach is a bit more unclenched than before.” It’s true — I was so stressed that my stomach had been in a knot. I had not realized how this sounded in a literal sense. He thought I had diarrhea.
