I got the call today.  I was not the chosen candidate.

Truth is, I have felt (known) all along I wouldn't get it.  Maybe it was pessimistic cynicism at work…but…I knew.  The "paranoia" could have been justified.  The post-interview self analysis was probably correct.

They told me I was "absolutely the second choice"…so, I got that going for me.


Oh well.  I might need to hit the liquor store on the way home.
