Modern Types, Part 2

His title is Associate Administrator for Awards and Titles. His job is to think of new awards to give and titles to confer.

Last year he was nominated for “Best Concept for an Awards Ceremony, Industrial Division, Non–Televised.” Afterward, he gave out lots of his cards at the party for the winner.

He likes his job, but the meetings take forever because the people in the other departments have so little to do.

Sometimes when he looks out his office window, he forgets the name of the city he’s in.

What he really wants, he decides, what could really help, is a new title.
