  • In our editorial conference room at the newspaper I write for, during reporter staff meetings I sit in the end seat nearest the door.
    It doesn’t have my name on it, but that’s my seat.
    It’s not necessarily the best seat at the table; it’s just mine. It’s where I sit.
    A few weeks ago, I walked into a reporter’s meeting and Mike, another reporter ,was in my seat.

    A few weeks ago I spent a Sunday afternoon at an outlet center in Orlando.

    I love outlets and malls, even if I’m not interested in buying things (which is a big if since I’m always searching for that shiny, cozy, silky, whatevery thing that will once and for all completely satisfy my soul. But that’s a topic for another day.)
