  • You can't have that - it's mine

    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.
