Although I am gravely sick, I hate the idea of leaving you in the lurch, so I’ll be there! Why am I calling to tell you this? Is it because I want to solidify myself as a really dedicated worker? Is it just to ease you fears since others have called in frequently lately? Well I’ll tell you why it isn’t.
