Day four: December 4, 2009
The other day, I was talking to my managing editor, William Yelles, about boot camp. Each morning, I told him, I feel like it doesn’t get stressed enough. This class is early. Like, really, really early.
I explained to him that I live in La Mesa and that boot camp is conveniently located in Scripps Ranch. The SDNN office, meanwhile, sits in Kearny Mesa. Up until Friday, my general practice has been to leave La Mesa at 5 a.m., get back home by 7, take a shower and drive to work at 8:30 and stay there until 5, just in time to hit traffic on my way home.
Needless to say, I was getting tired. I was getting really, really tired.
If I was working anywhere else, I’d likely be SOL, but this was a story, after all, and the boss tossed me a lifejacket. He told me to come straight to work after camp and end my day mid-afternoon. Thank God, I thought. This was going to get easier…..
