I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Welcome to the working week

A window-washer on Madison Avenue.

I am absolutely confident that this is the one job I couldn't do even if I were starving and it was my only option. And the fate of humanity and the lives of a hundred kittens were hanging in the balance. Many years ago, the father of a woman I knew was left hanging off a building for more than an hour after his scaffolding collapsed and his partner fell to his death. I still can't think about it without goosebumps.

No matter what happens to most of us at work, we will never have a day like that.
