Today I got an email from the local newspaper asking me whether I wanted to "write something" for them. Something I asked. Yeah, something. Now that was a clear order. Probably they want an opinion piece or a feature of sorts. But about what? Since they contacted me on my work email, I guess they want something vaguely work-related. Whatever that might be. I keep joking about having a list I call 100 hobby horses; 100 topics I have opinions on and can talk about at length, but when I am asked for one of them, none of them come up. Clearly I need to start keeping that list in writing.
