Excerpts: Who Are "They" Anyway - Part XLII

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 1:07 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

I tossed the paper towel
      in the trash.
I headed for the door,
      but in a moment of impulse
turned back to the mirror,
      still a little steamy
      from the hot water.
As I had sometimes done
      as a child,
I used my finger
      to write on
            the slightly foggy mirror.

      I wrote in big block letters.
I stood back and smiled.
