Slimm has been gone for something like 6 weeks. Something about having a baby, a family emergency, a surgical procedure, blah, blah, blah.
I really want him to come back.
It’s tough working with different people every day.
Slimm and I have gotten into a groove the past two years. I estimate we have worked well over 350 days together, twelve hours at a time.
We can run calls without saying a word to each other. We each know what needs to be done, and we just do it. Plus, he drives like butter. Seriously. He has the ability to make the imperceptible stops and starts, which helps when I’m in the back.
“What do you want me to do?” asks each and every partner-of-the-day I work with. I understand they just want to be helpful, and don’t know how I like to run calls. I don’t mind working with newbies, or other seasoned vets at all, it’s just taxing.
I really miss my partner.
