She sensed she might be in trouble.

To a very large audience of new work cohorts, the woman who presented before her talked about her wrestling skills and knowledge … like that was some kind of valued core competency at her new company.

Crap. She wilted in her chair and fidgeted. She didn’t know much about sports in general and even less about wrestling. She quickly searched her mind for something she might be able to offer up as athletic prowess.

And so when it was her turn to speak, she noted calmly that the only wrestling she did was with her thumbs and a lot of that involved fighting the autocorrect on her iPhone.

It was really the best she could do on such short notice. She slumped back into her chair and left with the mental note to take up a sport that was perhaps more social.
