You had me! Lol but on a more serious note, this is a great read and excellent reflection exercise for anyone contemplating leaving (to visualize what going back to a 9-5 would look like).

You got me! Great storytelling.. I was hooked in to every sentence. This reminds me of a Jordan Peterson exercise where you write out your worst and best case scenario so you lucidly understand the stakes.. Would be cool to see another fictional essay thatโ€™s the opposite of this. Whatโ€™s the absolute best case?
