Poseidon, Kafka, and the Tugster

View from the desk

The Tugster nails it at Names 9 and Kafka.

Kafka wrote this:

“Poseidon sat at his desk doing figures. The administration of all the waters gave him endless work. He could have had assistants, as many as he wanted–and he did have very many–but since he took his job very seriously, he would in the end go over all the figures and calculations himself . . . “

I wrote this (here):

Every day at noon, on a third sheet, I enter the distance traveled and fuel consumed for the day and compute the miles/ton.

It's readily apparent that Poseidon needs to put away the calculations and watch the sea more.
