Discovering Things That Suck
Today I created some more clean space in the office and in doing so discovered that some things just suck, for want of a better word. Mostly today was a shredding day. And usually I enjoy shredding. There's something very satisfying about turning big stacks of paper into confetti. Not so much today. Shredding papers with Bill's name and life on them (old TDY orders, etc.) was probably the hardest thing I have done. It was like I was erasing our history. I had to take lots of breaks, and even then there were times I wanted to frantically pull all the pieces out and put them back together again. Maybe if I could do that, I could put everything else back together again.
