I work at a company that's very "virtual". We are a real company, but many of our people are not together in a physical office. We have locations in Austin, Boston, New York, London, California, and Houston (at last count, four in Houston, I think). Then we have lots of folks at home offices. Or airports, hotels, bars, anywhere with a good reception and connectivity.

So we end up talking a lot on the phone. I am starting to recognize folks by their voice; at one point, I hope to even meet some of them. Sometimes, the conference calls are quite large, approaching 10 people.

Inadvertently, I've been using a tagline as I hang up: "thanks to all". It's simple, and so far, I haven't heard anyone else using it. I'm hoping that t becomes a signature of sorts.

safe deposit box

I am in a Raymond Carver story. We've recently moved to a new city. We're lost.

I opened a safe deposit box the other day; it came with my new bank account. I finally dropped some things in it.
