Fire Watcher

When I got a fire watcher job in a lookout tower, I bought one of those sinister briefcases that can roll along on inline skating wheels.

On my first day, I paused to reflect at the base of the lookout tower. I looked up several stories of steps, then down at my rollable briefcase.

I thought,
"This dumbass briefcase is fucking useless"
Then I unzipped the main compartment of my wheeled encumbrance. I found that my loving spouse had packed a yummy lunch AND the jet pack I ordered from the Sky Mall magazine I found below the upright tray table.
