Q: “Hey, you’re in prison. What do you talk about?”

A: “When I’m in prison I talk about spreadsheets and printouts. At lunch I sit with the other girls and we pull out our liquid paper and highlighters and talk about the possibility of a single period or other forms of punctuation. Sometimes we make graphs, sometimes tens of pages high, and we measure each bar and point so that it corresponds to the correct line. We break and tear at our pieces of bread, and wonder about project management, expressing our mild distress that Wilma has to reapply for the same job.”
