Midway through March of this year, when the pandemic really started to set in, my boss told everyone at the corporate office that they could start working from home.
The next day I worked until about 2 pm and I heard my wife talking to our neighbor, so I went outside and he mentioned how he hated being cooped up inside and would rather be working. I joked that we could cut down the tree that was dying in my front yard.
To my surprise, he took me up on it. But it was not the first surprise of that day.
