Less Healthy Megan

Shorter Megan McArdle: Screw the environment and the rest of you, I want my aerosol inhaler.

Bonus Giggle:
My asthma is terrible, and I'm stuck with one of the new inhalers, which is about as effective as waving one of those magnetic copper bracelets you buy off late night tv in front of my chest.

I often shop late at night in front of Megan's chest.

Second Bonus Giggle:
At 7:30 this morning, far earlier than I normally leave my house, I was outside in flip-flops and my pajama shorts, moving my car.

Either McArdle's a bad writer or her chest is too much exposed. First tv shoppers, now all of DC? Where is your shame, girl??

At 7:30 this morning, far earlier than I normally leave my house, And yet she works 16-hours days. By leaving for work far later than most people.

If she left at 8:30 she'd get home by 12:30 the next morning. My god, that woman suffers for her craft.

"who carries around $4 in change on a regular basis?"

People who know they're going to have to pay at least that much in parking meter fees where they work on a regular basis.

Add at least 30 minutes commute each way, and at least 30 minutes lunch. Neither of those counts as work for people who work for real; they should not count for Megan. That puts her home so earlier than 1:00 am. An hour for dinner, then up by 7:30 to leave by 8:30, means the poor dear only gets 5.5 hours of sleep a day at most. No wonder she gets sick...

That, or she lied about the 16-hour days.

I have absolutely no doubt whatsoever that she lied about working that many hours. Even allowing for behind-the-scenes work we don't see, that's ridiculous.
