At work, I sit in a row of three cubicles directly outside the Senior Vice President's office. This row is affectionately dubbed "The Firewall," because it stands between the SVP and rest of the world. To be honest, we're not really sure in which direction the firewall operates. Of the three, I am the lowest on the totem pole in terms of "firewall activity" -- I'm the back-up to the back-up.
Unfortunately, my cube neighbor is moving down the hall today. I guess I had better start wearing my Nomex pants.
