Standing on the top floor. Waiting for the elevator. A woman leans over. “I love your work,” she says.

“Excuse me?”

“My kids think you’re hilarious.”


“You’re Will Sasso, the comedian, right?”

“No, m’am. My names’s Joe.”

She smiles, knowingly. “Uh huh.”

“I’m just a programmer!”

“Right. Sure.” She pulls out a piece of paper and a pen, handing it to me.

“Can you sign this for my kids?”

“Uh …. Sure.”

So I signed it “Thanks for your support,” and I put ironic quotation marks around “Joe Shaw”
