Neither peace nor the U.S. economy respect borders.

Today’s IM conversation with the GM

the GM: yeah. i guy i know from work, his partner works at the uptown borders. when the word officially came down that they were closing he came over and said “gretchen omg all the borders in chicago are closing”

….

the GM: i was not thinking about the bookstore and i was like “omg what happened! am i going to be able to get home!”

the GM: i know. i thought it was biological warfare or something. i’m stupid

Wise words? Bring it.
