Walking through the crowded parking lot at work one morning, I was contemplating all of the other places I could be and things I could be doing other than trodding into a sea of cubicles to write in someone else’s voice for eight hours.
A bumper sticker caught my eye: “Marriage = Man + Woman”. And I realized I no longer needed any more excuses for why I don’t belong in Corporate America, in a place in which a bumper sticker’s message is the typical moral of choice.
I shook my head, felt my heart sink another notch, and continued my march in my stilletos. The same march I’ve done for almost ten years. It’s time. This square peg has never been more ready to get out of the round (black) hole of Corporate America!
