“Leaving at 3:30 today to meet the cable guy”

“Coming in at 10 am; gotta take my puking dog to the vet.”

It’s simple business courtesy: If someone’s going to be late or has an appointment, we let our co-workers or bosses know. A quick email notice sent around the department, accompanied with a short reason.

Nothing special. Routine stuff.

So next Tuesday morning, the big day when I drive Michelle to the Fertility Clinic in New Jersey, I can just imagine the one I’ll send:

“Taking Tuesday off so I can take my wife to be implanted with an embryo created by complete strangers’ egg and sperm. Hit me up on my cell if you need me.”
