My friend Jim Reische is the chief comms officer at Williams College, in Massachusetts. As such, he has many responsibilities. One of which is (still) writing.
Hence, his half-day out-of-office message one recent Friday:
I’m a writer. I write. I’m writing. After this morning I’ll go back to being an e-mailer who e-mails. I’ll respond to your message as promptly as I can after that.
In a true emergency, call or text me.
Thanks for your patience.
