I’ve discovered a new desk downtown. It’s tall, so you stand while you work, which is a pleasant change. Starting at the Ferry Building in San Francisco, walk to the intersection of Market and Pine, and you’re standing right on top of the place.
About 40 feet below you (under the street), you’ll find it.
I received two surprises from thoughtful colleagues this week. The first was a stunt double, whom I’ve named Hugo.
That’s just awesome, because usually I’m the stunt double. I’ve only had my own once before (an amazing man named Bobby, during a job where I was getting shot in the back). Even then, we were both wearing detonators.
Hugo is great. When I’m not certain I’ll survive something, I send him. (“Wow, that looks dangerous. Hugo first.”) Thanks Brett!
