A plan

A solution

My assistant came in today – she helps me with the mail once a week – and she told we that she was looking for a burqa for a short film she is co-producing.
She had been to a mosque; she had been searching the Web extensively, to no avail.
I found it alarming that it seems to be that difficult to buy a burqa in New York.
A burqa is a first but important step towards invisibility; for men and women.
And in case of a severe skin disease a burqa might be a solution as well.
It is what I always tell the people working for me. Let’s prepare ourselves for unpleasant surprises, let’s assume that everything goes wrong, we should not only have a plan B, but a plan C, D, E, and F. And if you are a really good personal assistant you have a plan G and H as well.
