Several interns were sitting around the Blurt offices last week. They were obviously lounging around, waiting to go back to school after a busy summer of vacuuming the office and making me smoothies. Their lack of initiative bothered me. No one had a smoothie ready for me.
Fortunately, a request had just come in for me to bring back the interview series. It was just what I needed to shake them up. “Get me an interview with Mothman. If I’m not talking with him by the end of the day you people will never work in this business again.” By 3:30 two of the interns, Four Eyes and No Neck, had a banana smoothie on my desk and Mothman on Skype. I thanked them, shooed them out of my office, then called them back and told them to fire all the other interns. I booted them out again and turned my attention to the interview.

Each Uisge is, according to Wikipedia, a supernatural water horse from Scotland that is “the most dangerous water-dwelling creature in the British Isles”. My staff was not able to locate the official ranking of dangerous water-dwelling creatures in the British Isles, but if that happens, I’m feeling good about the possibility of finding Each Uisge on the top.
