But it was a SPONTANEOUS FLUKE, so please, please, please PLEASE dont brief your godforsaken social teams on how you want to “do something like that.” Forcing it—by definition—the opposite of what, and why, it happened.
Everyone who has complained about advertising, especially during these “unprecedented times”, needs to join the Organizing Bowl and do something about it.

I had just a horrific commute into work and am quite angry at the start of my day / week. Any tips on righting the ship? Don’t want to start a busy week in a negative head space.

A friend who travels for his job in industry started having symptoms 10 days ago while in Vancouver for work, flew home to California then spent last week in Orlando for work and came home, got tested and has COVID. 🤦 Be safe out there.
