I am far too cynical for my own good. Embarrassingly so. I mean, someone you haven’t talked to in years calls you up out of the blue to catch up, and you assume there is an ulterior motive because said person is newly elected to government and you work at a government agency? And when you return the call, they really just wanted to catch up?
I’m a terrible, terrible person. If there was a hell, I would surely burn in it.
