Damn fine company
Somedays you think you're going to be doing heavy academic thought work, and others you just know you're in for manual labor. Somedays, you think you're in for one when you're really in for the other. Which makes the work easier and the company you keep while doing it more pleasant. With the exception of mosquitoes. I'm not sure how they were already out, but apparently watching someone else work makes them hungry. Hey, everybody's gotta eat. There's an old chinese story that humans were only allowed to live by all the other animals because mosquitoes talked them into it. There is a hidden value in being delicious. Just ask any dairy cow or ear of corn.
