The Bulb is OUT !

You may have noticed on your last visit to our website that some things rather left you in the dark. Sorry, but we had a light bulb burn out, right over there behind the text on the Call For Submissions page. You couldn’t read a thing.

Well, we knew we had to get it fixed, but no one knew what to do. Some of the staff thought we should find the Janitor. Some of the staff thought we should panic. The rest of us wanted to get back to work, and knew we wouldn’t be able to until we got this problem solved, so we went off in search of the Janitor. It seemed like the best idea at the time.

We searched for weeks (months, really.) And no wonder! It seems he had left the building. We found him down the street at the homeless mission doing volunteer work.

Anyway, he agreed to come back with us, changed the bulb, and now everything is brilliant! once more. Some of the staff suggested we should hire a cleaning service. Some said we should start paying the Janitor so he’d stick around more. And some decided that since the new bulb would eventually burn out, we should start worrying about it now. (They even wanted to write up a list of protocols so we would know what to do next time.) The rest of us just wanted to get back to work, so we did.

In the end, someone called in the Decorators to make some improvements. We don’t know who it was, but we suspect it might have been the guy that refills the water cooler. Anyway, the moral to the story is that thanks to the Janitor, the place is even more brilliant! than ever.

Check it out for yourself!

(I wear my sunglasses when I go over there.)

Uh, oh. Here comes the Publisher. He looks like he wants to write something. Gotta go!
