"Divebombing" is a very short piece by Tyler Barton, and it starts like this:
My boss pronounces “corgi” with a soft “g.” My boss knows the city’s every pothole and address. He prefers the term “criminal” over “crook” and thinks the Safety Coalition has an image problem. My boss makes awkward, unwarranted admissions about his personal life. He seems fifty but might be younger.Read the rest at the source!
My boss talks to the monitors, has a name for every camera, and it sounds like some are named the same as his cats. He says things like, “You’re living in the longest river in Africa—Denial—It’s an old AA thing.” My boss laughs mostly through his nose. My boss zooms in on faces and calls the people by name. Sometimes it’s like he’s looking for his son.
Fuuuuuuck I wanna write something this good one day!
