I'm Turning into a Pile of Sand
October 30th, 2004

The humidity in my office dipped below 20% this week, the same as last winter. If you need a frame of reference, the Sahara desert is usually at least 25%. Some people are able to tolerate this, but I’m apparently not one of them. Especially not when I’m in the 70-80 hour per week range. I have these questions:

  1. What are the long-term health detriments associated with being DRY?
  2. Would OSHA for New York City be likely to do anything about it being DRY?
  3. Is it socially acceptable to put chap stick on your eyelids?
  4. Seriously, what the f*ck?
