Overheard on Zoom before the morning meeting started, two coworkers discuss the current political climate while waiting for the rest of their department to log on. 

“Is there a debate tonight?”

“Nah, there’s one this week?”

“There was also a town hall less than two weeks ago!”

“What else could they possibly be discussing?”

“Probably just the same issues in new, awkward ways that make them sound old.”

“Nah, I don’t think there’s one.”

“CNN said something about one!”

“I can’t decide—are they fake news or not?”

“You’ll see, there’s definitely a debate tonight.”

“Is Donald Trump going to have anything meaningful to say?”
