So, it's now official; earlier today I fully assimilated myself into the Socially inSecure borg. As it worked out, this was a surprisingly painless encounter with the .gov. Beginning next year, I shall be financially dependant upon all of you who remain among the ranks of the employed. I look forward to discovering the difference in rankness my new station in life provides.
Funny, somehow it always felt like I would have more time to prepare myself for this eventuality. If only I could honestly use the humor/satire tag.
