Don't do this

Don't come to work, go get a massage and then drive back to work. I now have no desire to work and I smell great. Anyone want to smell me? In other news, I had a visit from a Man in Black this morning. Apparently someone I know applied for a job where they need a higher security clearance. He was supposed to show up last week. I had almost forgotten he was going to show up because he was supposed to show up last week and didn't. I talked to him on the phone yesterday and he said he'd be at my office between 11 and 11:30. He was actually here at 10:30. Who shows up an hour early?

Nope he didn't look like Mulder or Scully or even Will Smith or Tommy Lee Jones. More like a younger version of Rip Torn actually. Or maybe like the jock in high school who drank too much and got kicked off the football team. Then you see him at a class reunion 25 years later and he still has the same build and hair but he's maybe had a few too many doughnuts over the years.

No plain black suit either. Actually a charcoal gray flannel suit with fairly wide pin stripes plus a long sleeve shirt and tie. In this heat? You could tell he didn't get out of the office much. OK, so no black suit but I'm fairly sure I saw the bulge of a shoulder harness gun and what looked like a neuralizer. Fairly nice guy actually. As a matter of protocol he showed me his badge and FBI credentials but later when I asked for his card, he gave me one from a private security background check company. So is the company a cover or do FBI Agents moonlight?

The interview went well. He asked me probing questions and I answered honestly and briefly though I was tempted to explain the whole history of my association with my friend just so he had the right background. But he kept looking at his watch so I spared him the scenic drive through yesteryear. It's during something like this you realize how many little details you know or don't know about someone's life. After a couple of answers he was looking at me with a look that said, "Now how would he know that?"

I shared with him that I might be applying for a higher level explosives handling permit soon and he just winked and told me I'd be seeing him again since he handles all the background checks for that sort of thing. I just hope the people I'd give as references would be as forthright about my character as I was about my friend's character. But then again, my friend has nothing to worry about in that area.

Peace,

Wander

Only if you want to be fingerprinted and let them crawl up your ass with a flashlight.
