Odd Jobs
    by Josh Vogt
Odd Jobs
Artwork by Kevin Wasden

"According to your resume, Mr. Whisk, you spent five years as the Man in the Moon."

"That's right."

"After which, you had a short stint as an Easter Island statue."

"Correct."

"I see you've included a photo of yourself from that time."

"I tried to show my best side, sir."

"Then you applied for a department transfer and wound up as an extraterrestrial transmission beamed from the Cygnus X-1 star system."

"Exactly so."

"But that isn't your present position."

"No, sir."

"Apparently, you're now -- and please correct me if I read this wrong -- 'the calm before the storm.'"

"Spot on."

"Which storm, precisely?"

"Ah. That'd be telling. My work requires a bit of client confidentiality. Can't give folks too much warning."

"Would you at least explain how you go about doing this job?"

"I mostly sit in the corner and keep to myself. And I stay as quiet as possible."

"That explains your whispering."

"Yes, sir."
