Real Work Conversations: Killing It

Me: "So, if you had to divide humanity into two groups, and one group would randomly drop dead (but you didn't know which one), how would you create your groups?"

Boss: "...I'd try to make them as even as possible: ages, education levels, all that."

Me: "Yes, I was thinking of doing it by birth date. Like, all even-number birthdays would be one group, all odd-number birthdays would be the other. You'd probably have to make some changes to make sure the groups came out to the same sizes, but that should give a pretty even distribution worldwide. It's still a pretty horrifying scenario, though."

Boss: "Yes, it is. Why are you thinking about this?"
Boss: "...It's a story idea, isn't it?"

Me: "I'm a writer. We like killing people."
Me: "That didn't come out right."


  1. That's funny stuff right there! :D

  2. Yah. Work conversations are fun when you're a writer. :)

  3. As long as you kill them by vampires, it's cool.


Feel free to leave comments; it lets me know that people are actually reading my blog. Interesting tangents and topic drift just add flavor. Linking to your own stuff is fine, as long as it's at least loosely relevant. Be civil, and have fun!
