Yeah, it is Monday and the turntable is still in pieces on the kitchen table. It was go back to work and already I am struggling with the alarm in the morning. I account this a healthy sign. I broke my record for greasing 240’s today, doing 26 cases in a 6-hour shift. We were peppered with new people today. I have now become one of the established crew. Mary comes over to check our work. She asks John who showed him how to do the 240’s. “Mike did,” he said. Mary grins. “I trained him,” she says with pride.
