Dear friends, there’s no way to say it but plainly. This afternoon I was laid off from LuthorCorp.
I can’t say that I’m entirely surprised by this, although I did think that we’d all limp along together for one more year before our entire division was shut down. (One other person was laid off along with me.) I was also offered a nice severance package, certainly sufficient to keep me alive for a few months while I look for other, better work. So the news could be a lot worse. Nevertheless, my mind is still boggled. I feel as if I could sleep for a thousand years, or would, if my severance would cover it.
I have absolutely no idea what the future holds. I can’t tell whether I’m horrified or delighted by this.
