I apologize for all the circuitous, self-aggrandizing nonsense they undoubtedly just put you through. Even with the privilege of having caught only the last of it, I can already feel a headache incoming.

Honestly, they should know better. I really do not have the time to indulge their petty tantrums anymore, in addition to everything else I oversee. And the nerve to taunt me in such a manner? Ridiculous.

This is why I have trouble unplugging. A mere moment needed to rethink our strategy moving forward, and they took advantage of it. As those against us often do.

Nothing good has ever come out of me trying to unwind. Inevitably, any time spent looking away will coalesce into external, unwanted elements inviting themselves in and tainting my telling of this story.
