Clara was desperately trying to think of ways to keep me home today, instead of going to work in the morning. Eventually, she came up with this plan:

“Okay. How about you call your boss and ask him to do your work for you so you can stay home.”

I suggested we take things one step further, “And then I could call him and ask him to hire someone else to do my job and then I would never have to go to work again.”

She thought this plan was brilliant and was very excited. I’m wondering why no one else has ever thought of this before.
